It was attributed to that there were much more chain entanglements in UL-10 due to the high SC and more chain disentanglements occurred in the presence of a lot of LDPE under shearing field.
4] studied the shearing field of the intermeshing counter-rotating twin screw extruders by the simulation, focusing on the effects of flight thickness and screw channel depth, and the simulated results were compared with experimental results.
