Structural mechanics of paper and board This section deals with bending stiffness, compressive strength and out-of-plane strength. Use the links below to find more detailed discussion on these properties. These mechanical properties are particularly important in the use of many board grades, but bending stiffness is important also for printing papers. High stiffness is the
