Summary We numerically solve the Ericksen-Leslie hydrodynamic equations for a number of twisted nematic liquid crystal cells. We show that when an applied electric potential is varied abruptly across the cell, the resulting fluid motion can play a critical role in inducing the rotation of directors. The physics underlying the seemingly abnormal behavior of director rotation is investigated.
