Papermaking Fundamentals

TAPPICon 2022 


Submit your abstract


This track will focus on the latest advancements in our fundamental understandings of wood fibers, process phenomena and product performance at both low and high solids content, e.g. fluid-paper/fiber interactions (low solids content) and solid mechanics with treatment of viscoelastic-plastic analysis of fibers/paper/packages, and paper/fluid interactions (high solids content). 


Suggested topics included:

•    Fiber suspension dynamics in the approach flow, headbox, forming and press sections
•    Product performance and the relationship to physical properties of paper and board
•    New technologies for improving the circularity of fibre-based packaging
•    Advances in 3D fibre forming: wet forming, drying forming and pressing of paperboard
•    Novel technologies in forming and pressing
•    Modelling to simulate water removal, water balance, and rewetting
•    Energy saving technologies for improving heat efficiency
