Shaikh's Pocket Weaving Expert examines the weaving process from start to finish, beginning with
the history of this fabric construction method.
Common weave types, and jacquard weaves are explained, along with woven fabric properties. The author also includes a glossary of important weaving terms and words.
Keeping pace with rapid developments in the field, Textile Sizing illustrates the necessity and
value of sizing techniques in the modern textile industry.
This reference analyzes new fibers, spinning methods, and weaving techniques that affects textile production, and studies the impact of fiber properties, yarn quality, sizing processes and materials, and chemical and mechanical phenomena on efficient textile manufacturing and development.
Numerous tables dispersed throughout the text provide specific guidance on the wide range of processes involved in textile sizing and helps the reader to understand the importance of desizing and its effect on size recovery and environmental pollution.
Textile sizing is the perfect text for physical, surface, colloid, textile, materials, polymer, plastics, and fiber chemists; industrial, manufacturing, textile, fiber, and composite engineers; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
Optimizing the unique characteristics of textiles in applications for scientific and technological development requires an understanding of the structures and mechanics of fabrics. This unique book reviews all simple modes of deformations such as tensile, bending, shear, compression and complex, with an emphasis on the drape deformation of mainly woven fabrics. Structure and Mechanics of Woven Fabrics also discusses testing methods for the objective/instrumental measurements of fabric mechanical properties, as well as structure parameters.
Now in its third edition, this best-selling text is generally considered to be the definitive guide and reference to knitting technology. The presentation is clear, concise, systematic and carefully organized for easy reference. Each chapter covers both fundamentals and advanced concepts of the chapter topic. More than 250 photographs, diagrams and other schematics illustrate structures, designs, machinery and operations. This is in effect a mini-encyclopedia of today's knitting technology.
This handbook provides a detailed and well-illustrated guide to today's weaving technology. Every
step in modern weaving manufacturing is covered clearly and systematically, from fibers and yarns,
design and construction, and weaving fundamentals to the various modern methods of weaving,
structure, properties and testing, and weaving plant operations.
The content is carefully organized and sectionalized for easy reference. Over 500 photographs, diagrams, and other schematics illustrate materials, machines, auxiliary equipment, processes, and designs. More than 60 tables provide useful data in convenient form. Covers emerging topics such as computers and automation in the weave room and ISO quality and environmental standards.
