A theoretical framework was developed for the transition of a polymer from a melt to an amorphous solid. Focus was on the glass formation due to cooling that is relevant in many polymer processes like fiber spinning and film blowing. The model was validated by studying the fiber spinning problem for polyethylene terephthalate.
