The three Miesowicz viscosities of a liquid crystal model system consisting of the Gay-Berne fluid have been obtained by shear flow simulations. The viscosities along an isochore have been followed starting in the nematic phase at high temperatures across the nematic-smectic A phase transition down to low temperatures in the smectic A phase. The relative magnitudes of the viscosities as a function of the structure of the liquid crystal are discussed. The viscosities obtained by the shear flow simulations agree very well with those obtained by Green-Kubo relations in a previous work
