Article
Hamilton’s principle is one of the most important milestones of analytical mechanics. This principle is valid for fixed mass and discrete material systems in its original form. The seminal work of McIver published in 1973 (McIver in J Eng Math 7(3):249–261, 1973) made this principle applicable to variable mass systems and has been constantly refere...

Frictional forces (for temperatures less than the melting or devitrification temperature) and viscous forces (for higher temperatures) have important roles on solids conveying and melting processes in plasticating single-screw extruders. These forces are related to the shear stresses at polymer–metal interfaces. For temperatures at which the fricti...

The surface temperature of the root of the screw is an important factor for solids conveying, melting, and the conveying of molten resin in a single-screw extruder. Screw temperature data, however, are rarely available due to the difficulties in sensor placement and the transfer of electrical signals through rotating shafts. This study measures the...
