Given a viscosity is it possible to calculate required pressure for desired output?

Hi All,

I have a setup similar to the one pictured and I'm trying to figure out what kind of pressure I need to deliver the throughput.

Is there a formula that'll predict throughput based on pressure and viscosity?


It seems that my question is being answered in the paper attached but I haven't been able to understand the concepts well enough to condense it into a single equation.

Specifically, I'd like to get a Melt Flow Index (MFI) value from a known shear stress and shear rate. (bottom of page 222, 223, 224)

I posted this question in more detail on the 3D printing StackExchange
