Abstract: It is of great importance to accurately measure or predict the Residence Time Distribution (RTD) in designing extruders and/or in setting up a proper operating condition, because chemical reactions depend significantly on the RTD and temperature when chemical reactions take place during the extrusion process. A previous method to predict the RTD can analytically determine RTD, Residence Time Distribution Function fc t ) and Cumulative Residence Time Distribution Function Ff t), based on a simplified two-dimen…
