Abstract

Mathematical modelling of both papermaking fibre suspension flows and solid paper are considered in this paper. The authors own research work has mainly been carried out in the University of Eastern Finland by Paper Physics Group since 2004. The paper also consists of review of other related publications on rheology of paper and fibre suspension flows.
