Summary A theoretical analysis is presented for the estimation of the number of contacts between fibers in random multilayer nanofibrous assemblies with arbitrary fiber diameter and orientation. The statistics of fiber contacts for single-layer nanofiber mats were considered first, and the equations were developed for three-dimensional multilayer nanofibrous assemblies by considering the superposition of the single-layer assemblies. Based on the theoretical approach presented here for multilayer nanofibrous networks, the network porosity, mean fiber diameter and a function of fiber aspect ratio contribute to a model to determine the average number of fiber contacts per unit fiber length in multilayer nanofibrous mats. The theory is studied parametrically and results compared with the work of a model presented by Samson. It is shown that the presented model compared to the existing models is more sensitive with the fiber diameter in the nano-scale. It is also believed that the presented theory for fiber-to-fiber contacts is more realistic and useful for further studies of multilayer nanofibrous assemblies.
