The transient behavior and stability of film blowing have been investigated solving the governing equations consisting of the movingboundary partial differential equations. Incorporating an orthogonal collocation on finite elements and a coordinate transformation, a new numerical scheme was devised to obtain previously unavailable transient solutions. The scheme overcomes severe numerical problems, that are encountered especially when the process is in a periodic oscillation called draw resonance. These simulation results provide, for the first time, temporal pictures which are close to those observed experimentally, and enable a systematic analysis of the process as regards its stability, multiplicity, sensitivity and stabilization strategies.
