Manufacturing & Production Processes - ENGR3190U – Lecture 04 Chapter 13 - 13.2.2 Analysis of Extrusion Calculations For Plastics What is the flow rate of polymer melt in extruder? Refer to Figure 13.5 in textbook As screw rotates inside barrel, the melt is forced to move forward towards die, this is drag flow .

dp/dl = the pressure gradient (Mpa/m) – stronger at die end, weaker at hopper end. (Figure 13.6) If we approximate dp/dl by straight line then formula simplifies to L A Dd p Q c b η π 12 sin 2 3 =

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
