Fibre flocculation and forming mechanisms The theory of formation in fibre networks uses the studies of Corte and Kallmes in the 1960s 1. It has since been refined by others 2,3,4. Free drainage is assumed so that every fibre settles on the fibre mat randomly and independently of other fibres. The fibre positions therefore obey
