Rheology is a critical aspect of extrusion. Understanding the flow behavior of polymer melts is a key factor for successful extrusion equipment design, process setup and troubleshooting. Applied rheology is an active research topic due to the vast applications and relative complexity.


Prof. Ing. Martin Zatloukal has been a regular and great contributor to the SPE Extrusion Division with many articles and presentations over the years. His Research Work in the fields of Applied Rheology, Comptutational Fluids Dynamic and Extrusion have greatly contributed to better understanding of the extrusion process. Some members of the Extrusion Division Board of Directors will participate in the conference with applied rheology / Extrusion / Industrial applications papers.
