Entropy Time Evolution in A Twin Flight Single Screw Extruder and Its Relationship to Chaos
Chemical Engineering Communications
The flow fields in polymer processing exhibit complex behavior with chaotic characteristics, due in part to the non-linearity of the field equations describing them. In chaotic flows fluid elements are highly sensitive to their initial positions and velocities. A fundamental understanding of such characteristics is essential for optimization and design of equipment used for distributive mixing.
