FPIRC course no 15: Paper-Water Interactions

22 okt 2012

Course description/Content:

  • Moisture sorption and swelling
  • Water sorption and paper structure
  • Influence of temperature and water on mechanical properties
  • Interactions of fibres and water - product demands
  • Influence of moisture on mechanosorptive creep

Learning objectives: The student will after the course have a fundamental understanding of the ...
... mechanisms controlling moisture sorption and water-induced swelling of fibres,
... influence of moisture sorption on the mechanical properties of fibres and papers,
... mechanosorptive behaviour of paper and paper products,
... factors controlling liquid imbibition into fibrous networks, and
... limitations of fibrous products due to the interaction between water and fibres.
