Provides extensive coverage of physical properties
Focuses on standard and reproducible tests
Examines the properties of fiber, yarn, and fabric
This book covers the physical testing of textiles in the form of fiber, yarn, and fabric - based mainly on British and American standard methods of testing. Topics include:
fiber length and width measurement
yarn linear density
tensile strength of all forms
thermal and moisture properties
objective assessment of fabric handle
quality assurance Physical Testing of Textiles serves as a modern study on the subject, providing a comprehensive resource for students joining the textile industry as well as professionals and personnel working in the areas of testing and quality assurance.
