The nonlinear history of fibre flow research. Part 1: Background and beginning
2008 (English)In: Applied Rheology, ISSN 1430-6395, Vol. 18, no 2Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Technical fibre flows are normally flocky, but have theoretically mainly been treated as individual fibre flows. The reason for this can only be understood in the context of historic development. In Part 1 of this historic investigation the roots of fibre flow research are traced to the beginning of the 19th century. The subsequent development is followed through its formative period in the first half of the 20th century up to about WW2. Part 2 will continue up to about 1960s when the present main tradition had been well established. In Part 2, an example of an alternative approach will also be given, and some proposals for future development presented.
