A knowledge of the complete flow curve or rheogram of a polymeric melt depicting the variation of the melt viscosity over industrially relevant range of shear rate and temperature is essential in the design of polymer processing equipment, process optimization and trouble-shooting. These data are generated on sophisticated rheometers that are beyond the financial and technical means of most plastics processors. The only flow parameter available to the processor is the melt flow index of the… Expand
