    The shrinkage and drying behaviour of three-ply board was studied by examining the behaviour of individual plies separately and simulating the development of dryness and drying shrinkage/tension development within the combined board during cylinder drying. In paperboard the surface plies dry first and tend to shrink first, they also have higher shrinkage potential.Experimental results combuned with the simulation suggested large differencies in dryness and drying stress/shrinkage behaviour between surface and middle plies. Also considerable fall in tension of surface layers were predicted at each free draw area. Generally the differences were largest when the average board dryness is 75-85%.
