Assuming that the compressible behavior of polymeric melt obeys the Spencer–Gilmore equation of state, the effect of melt compressibility on calendering process has been investigated. The compressible model is distinctly different from the incompressible model in three ways. (1) It has substantially lower maximum pressure, (2) the location having maximum pressure moves closer to the nip region; (3) the contact point shifts closer to the nip region.
