With the polyXtrue polymer extrusion simulation software...

You can specify material properties:

    shear viscosity
    elongational viscosity
    thermal conductivity
    heat capacity
    density
    wall slip*

You can specify Processing Conditions:
    flow rate
    temperature

Now you will optimize:
    geometry
    processing conditions
    material selection

                       Elongational Viscosity Estimation Software
    
You will determine:
      Axisymmetric elongational viscosity using entrance loss in capillary rheometer
      Planar elongational viscosity using entrance loss in slit rheometer
   
You will capture:
      Elongation thickening followed by elongation thinning behavior of the viscosity

             Software for Estimation of Shear Viscosity Parameters
    
                You will accurately fit:
                      Shear viscosity model to experimental viscosity data

                Viscosity models allowed:
                      Carreau or Cross model for shear thinning behavior
                      Arrhenius or WLF model for temperature dependence
