Fibers and Fabrics

recreation applications. A fiber is a hair-like strand of material. “They are the smallest visible unit of a fabric and are denoted by being extremely long in relation to their width. Synthetic fibers are man made from chemicals. They are generally based on polymers and are stronger than natural and regenerated fibers. Synthetic fibers are the result of extensive research by scientists to improve on naturally occurring animal and plant fibers” (NSP). In its physical form synthetic fibers are widely available...

Chapter 1 Coconut Fiber as an Additive in Making Bricks

Feasibility studies about Coco fiber used in making Bricks CHAPTER 1: THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Background of the Study The coconut palm, Cocos nucifera, is a member of the family Arecaceae (palm family). It is the only accepted species in the genus Cocos. In this research we use Coconut coir to make bricks. Coconut Coir is a natural fiber extracted from the husk of coconut. Technically, coir is the fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the...

Carbon Fiber

"A carbon fiber is a long, thin strand of material about 0.005-0.010 mm in diameter and composed mostly of carbon atoms. The carbon atoms are bonded together in microscopic crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber. The crystal alignment makes the fiber incredibly strong for its size. Several thousand carbon fibers are twisted together to form a yarn, which may be used by itself or woven into a fabric. The yarn or fabric is combined with epoxy and wound or molded...

Importance of Fiber Length and Maturity in Short Staple Spinning

Importance of fiber length and maturity in short staple spinning General - Technology of Short-staple Spinning : "Technology of Short-staple Spinning" deals with the basics, and therefore generally valid, technological relationships in short-staple spinning. The following chapters will be organized according to machines or machine groups. Generally valid basic principles will thus be kept separate from ongoing developments in machine design and construction. Introduction to Spinning : The annual...

Fiber Optics

Fiber Optics History of Fiber Optics History Of Fiber Optics In 1870, John Tyndall, using a jet of water that flowed from one container to another and a beam of light, demonstrated that light used internal reflection to follow a specific path. • Alexander Graham Bell patented an optical telephone system, which he called the Photophone • He dreamed of sending signals through the air, but the atmosphere didn't transmit light as reliably as wires carried electricity. • During the 1920s, John...

Natural Fiber Composites in the Consumer Industry

The adaptation of natural fiber composites in the consumer industry has not had the same explosive growth as with the transportation or even the construction industry. The benefits of cost savings and weight reduction that can be obtained with natural fiber composites played a significant role for the proliferation into those respective industries. But in the consumer market, stemming from the rise of synthetic fibers starting in the 1940’s, glass fiber and carbon fibers have dominated the market...
