Abstract

The in-plane stiffness of a paper sheet decreases as the amount of interfibre bonding is reduced. Part of this reduction has been explained in the past as due to the absence of stress in the constituent fibrous material in directions transverse to the fibre axis in a lightly bonded sheet. A model is offered to explain how the remaining reduction of stiffness for lightly bonded sheets is dependent on the uniformity of mass distribution, i.e., the formation, of the sheet. The theory is shown to be consistent with reported experimental results.
