The aim of this work is to illuminate both practically and theoretically some of the factors which govern fiber flocculation.An attempt at explaning the applicabality of modern theoretical tools will also be made. -The objective of this work is focused even on the construction and calibration of an advanced flocculation measurement apparatus in order to experimentaly study the role of some basic factors in flocculation.
