Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

A methodology is presented to establish the flow profile induced in a spinneret during the spinning of hollow fiber membranes. The flow equations are derived for a power law fluid passing through a concentric annulus. The pressure drop, the velocity profile, the shear stress profile, and the shear rate profile induced during spinning can then be determined. This type of rheological knowledge is useful if membrane structure and properties are to be related to the flow conditions experienced in the spinneret.
