Almost all winding models incorporate the assumption of small linear deformations and strain in their development. These models treat the addition of a layer of web to a winding roll with linear analysis using linear strain theory. Very few winding models have been developed that incorporate large deformation theory although many models treat material nonlinearity. Tissue and nonwoven webs are highly extensible in-plane and highly compressible in the thickness dimension when compared to paper, plastic film, and metal foil webs. Winding models that embody large deformation theory should apply to all web materials. Such models may be wasteful in computation time for web materials such as paper, film, and foils where models that employ small deformation theory may provide sufficient accuracy. This would appear deterministic based upon the extensibility and compressibility of a web material, but the issue becomes more complex due to limitations in tension that can be exerted on the webs. Herein, a large deformation winding model will be developed. Results from this model will be used to benchmark results from other small and large deformation models, and with laboratory test data, a review of all results will be used to determine when or if large deformation winding models are required.
