This high-tech piece has chronograph quartz precision movement, with a built-in compass on the black, natural rubber strap, and tachymeter bezel ring.
The initial velocity [v.sub.0] was obtained from the known extruder flow rate and die radius, and velocity [v.sub.f] was measured by means of a tachymeter. Among the various assumptions made, gravity, flow instability including die swell and isothermal conditions are probably the most important factors, which influence the polymer response.
