A lot of fibre and fabric structures or finishing parameters influence the functional properties of fabrics. In order to assess the thermal properties of conventional polyester and microfibre types of fabrics the plate/fabric/plate method for conductivity or cool/warm feeling was used. Fabrics...
Reports on an automated apparatus and test procedure to determine the convective and diffusive gas and vapor transport properties of small pieces of woven and nonwoven fabrics, membranes, and foams. The apparatus allows measurement of these properties in the very small quantities typical of...
Traditionally, the grade of fabric’s crease recovery with twisting is decided by comparing the processed sample fabric with standard sample photograph under some conditions. This method is completely reliant on subjective appraisal, so it is easy to lead to some subjective error and affect the...
Stick‐slip is characterised by an intermittent movement when two materials are sliding across each other at very low speeds. This paper describes a new method of measuring stick‐slip on knitted and woven fabrics when sliding over non‐fibrous materials. The technique uses emitter‐receiver pairs...
A CAD tool for the garment industry is described. The tool generates garment patterns using Bézier curves and is currently embedded within an intelligent knitwear design support system. The curves fulfil the design constraints imposed by the domain, are adaptable to individual styles and enable...
This paper applies the study of kinanthropometry to define the physique of 49 Hong Kong‐Chinese Fire Services recruits. Kinanthropometry has been widely used in predicting the secular trend in increased body size of and among different ethnic groups world‐wide. It has also been applied in the...
