An engineering model of fiber growth from a flowing solution is presented. Attention is focussed on three main issues: the fluid mechanics, the molecular structure of the fluid, coupled with the thermodynamics, and the crystal growth itself. Although because of existing uncertainties order of magnitude analyses had to be adopted it was possible to obtain quantitative predictions about the growth process.
