Abstract: Abstract This study attempts to investigate the kinematics of the mixing occurring in the lenticular kneading disc section of the co‐rotating twin screw extruder, employing the tools of dynamics. The Eulerian velocity field distributions, generated by a two‐dimensional isothermal and creeping flow of Newtonian fluid under the periodic co‐rotation of the kneading discs, were obtained by Finite Element Method. A simple and novel particle tracking technique based on the FEM solution of the velocity field was emp…
