A rational computer‐aided design procedure is presented for determining the optimum flow channel geometry of a flat film die, which yields a minimum pressure drop and produces a uniform transverse flow rate distribution. The three‐dimensional die surface is generated by analytic expressions that represent a dumbbell‐like contour. The die surface may be specified by several geometric parameters. The length of the transition zone turns out to be the controlling parameter. Because of the complicated geo…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
