High-performance fibres by J. W. S Hearle ( )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This important handbook looks at how high performance fibres are designed and manufactured and covers their capabilities and applications. The high-modulus, high-tenacity (HM-HT) fibres fall naturally into three groups - polymer fibres such as aramids and polyethylene fibres; carbon fibres such as Kevlar; and inorganic fibres based on glass and ceramic fibres. The book shows how high performance fibres are being increasingly used for a wide range of applications including geotextiles and geomembranes, and for construction and civil engineering projects, as well as in specialist fibres within composite materials where their ability to fulfil demanding roles makes them an effective choice for the engineer and materials scientist

Physical testing of textiles by B. P Saville ( )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines the physical testing of textiles in the form of fibre, yarn and fabric, the emphasis throughout eing on standard and reproducible tests. After an introductory explanation of sampling and measurement, the author explores the effects of moisture on textiles, then goes on to discuss fibre dimension, yarn tests for linear density, twist, evenness and hairiness, tensile strength, and dimensional stability and serviceability. Also covered are aspects of comfort and fabric handle, colour fastness and quality assurance. The book's comprehensive coverage of the physical properties of textiles makes it an essential reference for managers in the textiles industry concerned with quality assurance, garment and fabric technologists, and students of textile science and engineering

Atlas of fibre fracture and damage to textiles by J. W. S Hearle ( )
9 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This new, retitled, edition of Fibre Failure and Wear of Materials has been updated and expanded to include more examples from work at UMIST (University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology) in the 1990s and to take account of recent research elsewhere. It contains over 500 new micrographs to add to the 1,000 in the first edition and includes two new sections on forensic and medical studies. Based on over 25 years of research at UMIST, the book is concerned with how fibres fail under stress. Until comparatively recently little was known about the way in which fibres break. In this book about 20 different modes of fibre failure are examined. Case studies have been selected both from the traditional uses of textiles in clothing and in household products, such as sheets, towels and carpets and also from the study of failure in textile structures used in industry and engineering, for example seat belts and ropes. This unique collection of more than 1500 scanning electron micrographs and other pictures for identifying failure modes, together with the accompanying explanatory text, provides fibre scientists, polymer scientists and others working in textile research with a better understanding of fracture mechanisms. The book will also be of interest to forensic scientists and medical specialists using fibre implants. Finally, it will help textile technologists and design engineers to manufacture improved textile products and to use them in ways which will maximise their life span
Regenerated cellulose fibres by C Woodings ( )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book contains information on the chemistry, physics, process technology, applications and markets for man-made cellulosic fibres. It covers the properties and applications of viscose rayon, cuprammonium rayon and the new solvent-spun fibres as well as considering their relationships with the natural cellulosics such as cotton and the synthetic polymer fibres such as polyester. This overview of the only truly, naturally recyclable fibres and the recent manufacturing techniques that have been developed to produce them is of interest to professionals in textile production, research and devel
Wool science and technology by W. S Simpson ( )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this groundbreaking book, leading experts within the industry come together to give the first comprehensive treatment of the science and technology of wool to be published in over 20 years. Wool: Science and technology covers all aspects of the modern wool industry from raw material to finished product and is an essential reference resource for anyone involved in the worldwide wool industry whether as processor, manufacturer, or user for the garment and carpet trades
Coated and laminated textiles by Walter Fung ( )
7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Coating and laminating offer methods of improving and modifying the physical properties and appearance of fabrics and scope for the development of entirely new products by combining the benefits of fabrics, polymers and films. This detailed book covers all aspects of coating and lamination within the textile industry, including compound ingredients, how to set and adhere to strictly controlled processing conditions, the accurate control of production variables, the safe handling of toxic materials and the ongoing research into future products which will facilitate recycling and disposal.

Handbook of tensile properties of textile and technical fibres by A. R Bunsell ( )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fibres usually experience tensile loads whether they are used for apparel or technical structures. Their form, which is long and fine, makes them some of the strongest materials available as well as very flexible. This book provides a concise and authoritative overview of tensile behaviour of a wide range of both natural and synthetic fibres used both in textiles and high performance materials. After preliminary chapters that introduce the reader to tensile properties, failure and testing of fibres, the book is split into two parts. Part one examines tensile properties and failure of na
