Abstract

Paper variability and its influence on the methods of testing paper and the interpretation of test results is discussed. Variability of test data due to the composite and viscoelastic nature of paper, and moisture and temperature relationships is considered. Some topics covered are formation and furnish variability, the anisotropic nature of paper, network theories, preconditioning influences, and the hysteresis effect. Interpretation of test data is discussed with emphasis on the fold endurance test: its lack of precision, the wide variation in test results, and the possibilities for multiple interpretations.
