We derive a one-dimensional model that describes pressing of water saturated paper in the press-section of the paper machine. The model involves two nonlinear diffusion equations which are coupled across an internal boundary. Existence and uniqueness as a number of qualitative properties are demonstrated. Further, computational results for a concrete case are discussed.
