Lee, M. E. M. (1997) Mechanisms of carding. Masters thesis, University of Oxford.
A model for a slender thread or fibre in a slow viscous incompressible fluid is derived. The material of the thread is assumed to have no bending stiffness and to be strictly inextensible. The model is then applied to a simplified industrial situation found in carding, where a thread hangs off a hook. In two limiting cases, perturbation methods give approximate asymptotic solutions, and numerical solutions are found for the general case.
