Abstract: Abstract In industrial coextrusion operations, multiple layers are frequently brought in contact with each other at different temperatures to “match” viscosities and to reduce interfacial instability. Here, a linear stability analysis of multilayer plane Poiseuille flow is carried out for real, specific polymer melts in terms of process parameters, such as temperatures and flow rates. However, heat transfer across the layers is neglected as a first approximation. Previously, it was observed that below a certa…
