In-plane tensile properties In-plane mechanical properties in tension are important in papers for printing or other uses in the form of a web, and in packaging papers and boards. The fundamental quantities are tensile stiffness, or elastic modulus and tensile strength. The in-plane stiffness of sheets is roughly given by the typical fibre axial modulus
