Modelling of the crumpling process of a paper sheet

(1) , (2, 3) , (4) , (5)


The packaging sector needs innovative solutions to face both the worldwide competitiveness between companies and sustainable development issues. In response to this demand, this paper proposes the study of a new folding technique which erects 3D structures from a single flexible sheet. This technique consists in creating a network of complex patterns according to a crumpling process that generates random folds. In order to give a better understanding on the crumpling process, a descriptive modelling is proposed. It highlights useful and useless characteristics conferred to a flexible sheet and gives ways for the development of graph based methods more adapted to the modelling of crumpled structures. A study case on a food packaging supports the proposition.
