ETPL 3345 - Advanced Processing 1

Credits: 4
Application of the laws of conservation (mass, momentum, energy) to polymer processing:  Using fluxes and differential volume elements yields the 1-D, steady-state transport equations.  Steady-state flows in simplified geometries; within circular cross-sections; between parallel plates.  Explores the phenomena occurring in the three sections of a single-screw extruder.  Application of the power law model to more accurately describe the rheological behavior of polymers in continuous polymer processing operations:  wire coating, pipe, profile, cast and blown film, plus calendering (to form sheet). Prereq: ETPL 1100 and ETPL 2230 $
