Steady-state modeling of extrusion cast film process, neck-in phenomenon, and related experimental research: A review

This review provides the current state of knowledge of steady-state modeling of the extrusion cast film process used to produce flat polymer films, as well as related experimental research with a

Heat transmission in a magnetohydrodynamic multiphase flow induced by metachronal propulsion through porous media with thermal radiation

The motivation of the current study is to examine heat transmission through a non-Newtonian multiphase flow. Casson fluid is taken as the base fluid to form a particulate flow suspended with dust

Controlling draw resonance during extrusion film casting of nanoclay filled linear low-density polyethylene: An experimental study and numerical linear stability analysis

Commercially important extrusion film casting (EFC) processes for manufacturing plastic films or sheets are hampered by several instabilities that severely limits their productivity. In this research



Transient and steady-state solutions of 2D viscoelastic nonisothermal simulation model of film casting process via finite element method

The various aspects of the nonlinear dynamics and stability of nonisothermal film casting process have been investigated solving a two-dimensional (2D) viscoelastic simulation model equipped with the

On the stabilizing effects of neck-in, gravity, and inertia in Newtonian film casting

We investigate the influence of the reduction of width along the stretching direction, the so-called neck-in effect, on the draw resonance instability in Newtonian film casting using a linear

Stability Analysis of Film Casting for PET Resins Using a Multimode Phan-Thien-Tanner Constitutive Equation

In film casting or extrusion coating of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins, thickness and film-width nonuniformities arise due to edge neck-in or to flow instabilities such as draw resonance.

Stability analysis of a three-layer film casting process

The co-extrusion of multi-layer films has been studied with the focus on its process stability. As in the single-layer film casting process, the productivity of the industrially important multi-layer

Film casting of a modified Giesekus fluid: Stability analysis

Non-isothermal analysis of extrusion film casting using multi-mode Phan-Thien Tanner constitutive equation and comparison with experiments

Extrusion film casting (EFC) is an industrially important process which produces thousands of tons of polymer films, sheets, and coating used for various industrial as well as household applications.

Study of the stability of the film casting process

A theoretical study of the film casting process has been carried out. In this industrial process, a molten polymer is extruded through a flat die, then stretched in air and cooled on a chill roll.
