Abstract: In Part I1 of the work, the intermeshing twin-screw extruder is briefly described and the theoretical procedures used to model its operation are summarized. Based on the microrheological considerations discussed in Part I, a predictive procedure of the morphology evolution during compounding of two immiscible polymers is proposed. In this first generation model, only the shear flow effects are considered. Furthermore, to avoid complications due to coalescence a low concentration of the dispersed phase was ass…
