Additional recommended knowledge
In, for example, a screw extruder, the energy supplied to the polymer melt comes primarily from two sources (i) viscous heat generated by shear between parts of the flow moving at different velocities (ii) direct heat conduction from the wall of the extruder. The former is supplied by the motor turning the screw, the latter by heaters. The Brinkman Number is a measure of the ratio of the two.
