The main aim of this paper is to present results for the Z-direction compression characteristics of paper structures. The results presented show two basic deformation mechanisms occurring during monotonic loading and unloading of handsheets made from unpressed, air-dried, unbeaten bleached eucalypt kraft fibres. Confocal microscopy is used with image processing to collect and present images of the surface and internal structure of the same area of sample. The mechanism of local deformation of sheets is discussed and a simple theory of paper deformation under load in the Z-direction is presented.
