By what mechanism does gluing arched braces to a flat top using a gluing caul that is flatter than the braces increase stiffness?

While doing so will increase the tension and compression of the components being glued, how does that relate to increasing stiffness?
It is like keeping a truss rod very tight with a straight neck, it makes the neck more stiff and improves volume, sustain and tone.
