Spinning of a Noll simple fluid

Authors


Abstract

Previous results for a class of flows dynamically possible in a Noll simple fluid are the starting point for a description of melt spinning or dry spinning in the limit of a rapidly extruded, small diameter polymer thread. Simultaneous energy and mass transfer, important in the real process, are not taken into account; also neglected are inertial effects, body forces, and surface tension.
