Comparison between squeeze film flow of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids with applications to foam-formed papermaking process

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Foam forming technology for manufacturing paper is a novel technique in which the paper sheets are made from a suspension of pulp fibres in foam, rather than a suspension of pulp fibres in water. As well as reducing the water footprint of the papermaking process overall, foam bubbles along with foam rheology are believed to play a significant role in producing a fibre network with improved characteristics compared to water-formed papers, including more uniform pore size distribution, increased strength, lower density, etc.
