A computation method for the development of the interface in coextrusion flows is proposed. It is based on the transformation of the nonmixing condition at the interface into a transport equation of the rheological constants in the whole domain. The coextrusion flow of a Newtonian fluid and of a Carreau fluid is tested. It is pointed out that the interface location is strongly dependent on the flow rate and on the flow rate ratio.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
