Research description:

I am working on two projects in collaboration with the pulp and paper industry.
In the first, I am developing a piezo-ceramic sensor to measure forces on the bars of a mechanical wood-pulp refiner.
In the second, I have developed an instrument which is being used to study the properties of single wood-pulp fibres when subjected to loads.
