We combine an analytical solution of the Smoluchowski convection-diffusion equation that fully takes into account the boundary-layer structure, with generalized integral equations of the liquid state. We investigate the shear-induced structural distortion in suspensions of spherical colloids, in concentrated regimes of packing fraction so far explored only by means of numerical simulations [1].

For hard spheres, our findings are in very good parameter-free agreement with numerical data from literature [2]. In addition, our scheme predicts (for the first time) a consistent enhancement of the structure factor S(k) at vanishing k, upon increasing the shear rate, which we argue may signal the onset of a shear-induced phase transition from the isotropic phase to a non-uniform one.
