Physical Properties of Textile Fibres
Encyclopedic in scope, this is the foremost guide and reference to the structure and physical properties of textile fibers. It covers in detail all physical properties relevant to natural and synthetic textile fibers.
A 73-page foundation chapter provides a thorough introduction to fiber structure, followed by separate chapters on each of 25 physical properties. Each of these chapters provides a detailed examination of basis in theory, practical considerations in applications, experimental techniques and findings. Two chapters added to this third edition cover high performance fibers, and flex fatigue and other forms of failure The 738-page text is illustrated by more than 500 photographs, micrographs, diagrams and other schematics. The text is supplemented by more than 100 tables and graphs providing properties and performance data in convenient form.
