Abstract [en]

The present paper explores the short span compression tester (SCT) as a means to experimentally determine the transverse shear moduli of paper. These moduli, which are known to be difficult to determine by any other means, are of importance for the behavior of paper during tissue manufacturing and in the converting and embossing of paperboard. Testing was conducted on paper of two different grammages both in MD and in CD. By applying the Timoshenko-Engesser theory for buckling of shear compliant materials, estimates of the transverse shear moduli were obtained through the measured SCT values and standard measurements of the Young's modulus and the thickness. These estimates were evaluated by detailed FE-analyses of the SCT setup incorporating initial geometrical imperfections representative for real test conditions. It was found that the Timoshenko-Engesser theory gives estimates of the transverse shear moduli that are within an accuracy well applicable for most engineering purposes. The results suggest that the method is at least as accurate as any other, more involved, method that could be used for the purpose.

Abstract [en]

An innovative creping simulator for tissue has been developed to meet the requirements set by both industrial needs, such as speed and process step duration, and research ambitions, such as flexibility for modifications and efficient operation. Some of these factors can be difficult to achieve with the previously introduced simulators. Lower speeds and much longer process step times can jeopardize results when, for instance, the drying time of chemicals is longer and the speed of creping is slower than in a tissue mill. The newly developed simulator has been used to investigate the effects of paper grammage, creping angle, temperature of dryer, speed and the horizontal force experienced during tissue creping. Results show good agreement with results of industrial-scale tissue production, with the exception of shrinkage which was greater. It was observed that the grammage influences the final thickness and the shrinkage of creped sheets, and that creping speed affects the creping frequency, thickness and shrinkage. The temperature of the surface of a sled mimicking the Yankee cylinder was shown to influence creping frequency and thickness. The horizontal friction force during creping appears to increase if drying temperature is lowered.
