The bubble inflation technique has been used for some time as a rheological characterization method for polymeric materials. Recently, this technique has been modified to the inflation of a polymeric sheet into a circular cylinder. In this work, the experimental inflation of sheets (or membranes) of polymeric melts into a circular cylinder is modelled numerically to obtain the general extensional properties of the material.
