Abstract: Abstract The flow analysis network (FAN) method was modified to analyze the flow of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) in a model counter‐rotating nonintermeshing screw extruder. The numerical prediction of the pressure profiles was compared with the experimental results. Flow patterns in the screw elements of the model counter‐rotating nonintermeshing twin screw extruder were also predicted. A new flow path method was developed to calculate the residence time distribution. This result will be applied to analyz…
