Résumé

A theoretical model to determine the residence time distribution (RTD) in a co-rotating twin-screw extruder is proposed. The method consists of coupling a continuum mechanics approach with a chemical engineering one and allows us to obtain the RID without any adjustable parameter. The process parameters are obtained using Ludovic(R) twin-screw modeling software, and ideal reactors are chosen to depict the screw profile. The influence of screw speed, feed rate and viscosity on RTD are described on a fictive screw profile. The predictions of the model are in qualitative agreement with literature data. The key point of this procedure is obviously the correct association between an ideal reactor and a screw element.
