Grahic Jump Location
Schematic view of the reference state of the web showing the contact and no-contact regions. (a) Web-guide spacing in no-contact region. (b) Quiescent web in contact region.
Grahic Jump Location
The porosity parameter A and the normalized permeability κ1/2/c as a function of fiber volume fraction ϕ in a web. The different curves for different σo/L are calculated while all the problem parameters are kept constant as given in Table 1.
Grahic Jump Location
The steady-state equilibrium conditions in the web-guide interface. Note that the web is in contact near the exit side of the interface (ϕ=0.88,σo/L=5×10−6,p̄o=1).
Grahic Jump Location
The web-guide clearance h̄, air pressure p̄, and contact pressure p̄c variation for different values of fiber volume fraction ϕ values are given in plots (a–c) for σo/L=5×10−6,p̄o=1. Plot (d) gives the detail of the entry region for ϕ=0.73.
