We consider various theoretical perspectives on the flow of unoriented liquid crystals as thermotropic and lyotropic. Generalized flow equation is used for describing of the characteristic properties of liquid crystals as structured systems. The importance of thixotropic properties of liquid-crystal systems was shown.

Keywords: generalized flow model, rheology, liquid crystals
