Abstract. Manufacturing advancements have led to a focus on the use of natural composites prepared from wood pulp fibres. Wood pulp fibre suspension has shown an interesting which could be used for commercial products because of its many advantages, such as low density and relatively high mechanical properties. However it is different from other solid particles due to its different length, flexibility and concentration properties. The thermos-physical properties of the fiber suspension have various applications in industries such as papermaking, textiles and composite production. This review -summarizes the effects of changing parameters on friction loss and heat transfer in wood pulp fibre suspensions- This information can play a significant role in the future development of papermaking.
