Abstract: Abstract 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…
