  1. 1. Micromechanical Behavior of Fiber Networks

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Svetlana Borodulina; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Network simulation; Mechanical properties; Fibers; Bonds; Paper properties; Damage; Microfibril angle; Torsion;

    Abstract : Paper is used in a wide range of applications, each of which has specific requirements on mechanical and surface properties. The role of paper strength on paper performance is still not well understood. This work addresses the mechanical properties of paper by utilizing fiber network simulation and consists of two parts.

  2. 2. Micromechanical Modelling of Wood and Fibre Properties

    University dissertation from Division of Structural Mechanics, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Kent Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Environmental technology; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; Microfibril angle; Density; Hygroexpansion; Stiffness; Simulation; Wood; Fibre; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; Material technology; Materiallära; materialteknik;

    Abstract : Wood is a material with mechanical properties that vary markedly, both within a tree and among trees. Moisture changes lead to shrinkage or swelling and modify the mechanical properties. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hygroelastic behaviour of wood-fibre based materials on the composite, fibre and ultrastructural level

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Razvan Cristian Neagu; KTH.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wood fibres; ultrastructure; structure-property relations; microfibril angle; composites; characterization methods; hygroelastic properties; micromechanics; modelling; reinforcement potential; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Wood fibres can be used as reinforcement in plastics for load carrying purposes. Some advantages compared with conventional man-made fibres are that wood fibres come from a renewable resource, have high specific stiffness and strength, are generally less hazardous to health, biodegradable, and can be manufactured at low cost and high volumes.
