M. Kimura, M. Usuda and T. Kadoya. Moisture dependence of impact rupture properties of paper. In Fibre-Water Interactions in Paper-Making, Trans. of the VIth Fund. Res. Symp. Oxford, 1977, (Fundamental Research Committee, ed.), pp 671–681, FRC, Manchester, 2018.


There are a number of studies on the relationship between the mechanical properties of paper and adsorbed water. In other previous papers-Anderson⁽¹⁾, Yoshino⁽²⁾, and Kadoya⁽³⁾ which concerned moisture dependence of mechanical properties of paper under impact conditions, it was found that the maximum values in the impulse or rupture energy existed at 15-18 per cent moisture content. The reason why such a maximum value exists is, however, left unsolved, because of the complexity of failure mechanism under impact conditions.
