FPIRC Course no 10: Paper Mechanics

25 sep 2017

Course description/Content:

  • Paper as an engineering material
  • Packaging performance
  • Behavior of corners in carton board boxes
  • Statistical aspects of failure of paper products
  • Fracture properties
  • Moisture-induced deformations
  • Creep and relaxation
  • Mechanics in printing nip for paper and board
  • Micromechanics

Learning objectives: After the course, the participants should be able to ...
... discuss important paper technology applications in an correct mechanics terminology,
... relate the results of important methods for mechanical testing of paper to the appropriate mechanics terminology,
... describe important aspects of constitutive modelling of paper and board in converting and end-use applications, and 
... demonstrate the benefits of mechanical modelling and numerical analysis in paper technology applications.

Pre-requisites: It is desirable that the participant has knowledge of strength of materials and solid mechanics, equivalent to a 4-6 weeks academic course for engineering programs

Tentative Contributors: Prof. Sören Östlund, KTH; Prof. Tetsu Uesaka, MIUN; Docent Mikael Nygårds, Innventia/KTH; Assoc. prof. Artem Kulachenko, KTH.

Literature/Course material: Mechanics of paper products (2012), Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co. KG, Berlin, Germany.

Type: FPIRC Focus


Examination: Assignments and written examination

Place: KTH, Stockholm

Registration and course fee: Registration no later than Oct. 6, 2017

The course is free of charge for PhD-students listed at Swedish universities; other PhD-students are entitled to a reduced course fee. Industrial participants are welcome to take the course as commissioned education; the course fee is then SEK 14.700:- (not incl VAT).

OBS: Tack vare ett riktat anslag från "Skogsindustrins Forskningsstiftelse", erbjuds samtliga industrideltagare från alla de svenska massa- och papperstillverkande medlemmarna i Skogsindustrin, att delta helt utan kostnad – vänligen ange i "extra information"-rutan, vid registreringen, om just du är berättigad till denna eliminerade avgift!
