Abstract: Abstract In this paper, a model for the conveying of solid polymer in the feeding zone of intermeshing co‐rotating twin screw extruders is proposed. The theoretical model uses an approach that is similar to that commonly used in single screw extruders; however, it takes into account the particular geometry of the screw channel, the partially filled channel, and the special configuration of the two self‐wiping screws. The model thus considers two conveying mechanisms: the first one in the channel, which is ana…
