This suggests that the melting level increases with the increase of feeding rates, and that polymer melts less uniformly at higher screw speeds.
Melting level and uniformity in the C-chamber increases with the increase of pressure buildup in the material because the pressure buildup might accelerate local melting, which is associated with energy dissipation between particles (particle friction and plastic deformation) and viscous energy dissipation.
An attenuation analysis method is proposed to characterize the melting level in the C-chamber.
