Current Research

  • Use of VFM (Virtual Fields Method) for stiffness identification in thin web materials
  • Determination of stiffness variation (heterogeneity) in paper and paperboard

Research Interests

  • Constitutive behavior of paper and paperboard
  • Full-field experimental displacement techniques on orthotropic materials
  • Property optimization for increased end-use performance of cellulosic materials
  • Time, temperature and moisture effects on paper and paperboard
  • Heterogeneity characterization of materials
  • Full-field displacement measurement techniques

Why This Research is Important

Conservation of the US cellulose fiber resource reduces landfill requirements, transportation costs and improves industry competitiveness.
