Due to their complexity and diversity, understanding the structure of textile fibers is of key importance. This authoritative collection provides a comprehensive review of the structure of an extensive range of textile fibers.
After an introductory set of chapters on fiber structure and methods to characterize fibers, the book is classified into three main fiber groups. The second part of the book includes chapters that review the structure of natural cellulosic and protein fibers, including cotton, silk, and wool. Part three covers the structure of manufactured polymer fibers, for example polyester, polyamides, elastomeric fibers, and high-modulus, high-tenacity polymer fibers. The concluding part of the book discusses the structure of a variety of other textile fibers such as glass, carbon and optical fibers.
Edited by leading authorities on the subject and with a team of international authors, the Handbook of Textile Fiber Structure is an essential reference for textile technologists, fiber scientists, textile engineers, and those in academia.
