Abstract: Abstract In Part II of this series of publications, the first generation model of morphology evolution during polymer blending in a twin‐screw extruder was presented. The model was based on a simplified flow analysis, and an assumption that dispersion occurs via drop fibrillation followed by disintegration. In the present Part IV, several modifications of the model are discussed. (i) The flow analysis was refined by computing the pressure profiles. (ii) The flow paths and strain history of the dispersed dropl…
