Based on the assumption that the solid plug existed in the grooved melting zone and then was ruptured into upper solid plug and lower solid plug, some researchers [17] suggested that main source of the melting heat was the internal friction heat generated by two solid plugs, which were in the barrel groove and the screw channel, respectively, rubbing against each other.
In mild cases, the increased pressure results in increased melting rate and an unplugging of the channel, with a reformation of a new melting pattern.
