- Take two sheets of paper, glue them together. How hard is it to bend the papers?

I am no engineer, just a physicist. I usually do not work with such problems, so I basically do not know what to look for to begin with.

My question/questions goes like this, take the following situation:

Fetch a paper, such single paper is easy to bend. If one takes glue, and glue this previous paper with another one. Obviously, the two papers are harder to bend.

I am clueless on this subject and I do not really know where to look at! I surfed throw the following on wiki: Bending, Bending Moment.

- How to model the "resistance" to bend of a simple two dimensional object? (Formulas, methods, coefficients etc...)
- How does glue enforces the two sheets, and how to model its effect? (I am seeking empirical as well as theoretical formulas)
