This book details a system of theoretically derived inherent laws of fibrous assemblies. It includes original results of theoretical research carried out on fibrous assemblies. Chapters of this book are started with definitions, terminologies and fundamental relations. The author begins with basic and simple discussions and gradually develops sophisticated formmulations. The book provides a roadmap that can be used to develop understanding of the fibrous assemblies.
