Introduction. Physical Description of Single-Screw Extrusion. Fundamentals of Polymers. Theories of Single-Screw Extrusion. Screw Design, High Performance Screws, and Scale-Up. Gear Pump, Static Mixer, and Dynamic Mixer. Die Designs. Viscoelastic Effects in Melt Flow. Special Single-Screw Extruder with Channels on the Barrel. Physical Description of Twin-Screw Extruders. Appendices:  Universal Constants, Unit Conversion Factors, and Prefixes.


The author presents single-screw extrusion technology together with the relevant polymer fundamentals, with an emphasis on screw design. The presentation begins on a physical level, providing an in-depth conceptual understanding, followed by an analytical level with mathematical models. Practical applications of the mathematical models are illustrated by numerous examples. A brief description of twinscrew extrusion technology is also presented.

This revised third edition now also covers a novel patented barrier screw design that eliminates shortcomings of all previous barrier screw designs, more descriptive specific screw design guidelines, a scientifically designed pineapple mixing section, and general improvements and corrections to the previous editions.
