Abstract

Theory is presented describing the fraction of fibre surfaces in a random fibrous network that contact zero, one or two other fibres. A full model gives these absolute contact states in terms of the fractional contact area (FCA) and mean coverage of the network. An approximate model gives the absolute contact states as a function of FCA only. The expressions derived are compared with experimental data and agreement is excellent.
