The tensile behavior of a thin web-like paper network was simulated by two simple mathematical models. The mesh distortion, drop in tensile force and energy loss resulting from breakage of a network junction were calculated. These results were used to formulate two parameters for characterizing interfiber adhesion: a parameter averaging the network energy losses incurred in a series of bond breaks when the network is elongated and a parameter averaging the force drops. The effect of mesh size, local bond adhesive force, and size and shape of the specimen network were calculated. These results based on model studies were used to interpret behavior observed in an actual paper network.
