Abstract: Abstract The multilayer stratified flow of several polymers in a flat coat‐hanger die was modeled using a finite element method. The problem was formulated using the lubrication approximation theory. A solution procedure in decoupling pressure and streamlines was developed. This new method is very powerful in comparison with more classical approaches, permitting the solution of flow problems involving a great number of layers in a complex industrial geometry. It allows us to obtain, among other things, pressu…
