Abstract: Abstract A simulation technique for nonisothermal flow analysis of non‐Newtonian fluid in a nonintermeshing counter‐rotating twin screw extruder was developed by modifying the flow analysis network (FAN) method. The local shear viscosity in the flow field was calculated by an iteration method combing the three types of mean shear rate functions. The modified Cross model and an Arrhenius‐type function for temperature dependence were also introduced. Streamlines in the flow field are represented by computing th…
