AIR VELOCITY DISTRIBUTION OF THE CIRCUMFERENTIALLY ARRANGED NOZZLE GROUP

ABSTRACT
The air-flow field of the circumferentially arranged nozzle group is modeled and simulated. The air velocity distribution is measured using a hot wire anemometer. The results show that the simulated velocities coincide with the measured ones, confirming the effectiveness of the model. Larger rotating speeds can yield larger air velocities, indicating that introducing auxiliary air is favorable to the polymer drawing in the centrifugal spinning.
