Paper Abstract

Twist-cell with infinitely rigid director anchoring on the one planeparallel surface and periodic finite director anchoring on another surface is considered. The conditions for anchoring parameters that allow obtaining the director structure similar to that in the twist-cell with homogeneous anchoring are determined. In this case the expression for effective director anchoring strength is obtained. The effect of “supporting” of director anchoring in the area where the real anchoring strength equals zero is found.
