Abstract : A relation between fibre stiffness and the shear modulus of a three-dimensional fibre network has been derived partly theoretically and partly empirically. It is valid for fibres of different origin provided that there is a low value of the radius to length ratio. This relation makes it possible to determine elasto-viscometrically the stiffness of fibres which for different reasons cannot be handled individually. (Author)
