    Notes: Using an integral nonlinear constitutive equation including the Log-Normal relaxation spectrum, the fiber-spinning behavior of commercial polypropylenes is studied. The relaxation spectrum is strongly related to the molecular weight distribution. Moreover, by means of a finite element analysis, simulated stress and velocity profiles are obtained either in isothermal or nonisothermal cases. In the isothermal case, broadening the relaxation spectrum leads to more pronounced curvature of the velocity profile. In the nonisothermal case, the critical draw ratio is sensitive to the mean relaxation time which depends on both average molecular weight and distribution breadth. It is shown that increasing the average relaxation time leads to a less rapid growth of the velocity. Furthermore, this effect is less pronounced when the relaxation spectrum is wider.
