Investigation of combing forces: part I: fibre tension
journal contributionposted on 1991-01-01, 00:00 authored by Xungai Wang, N A G Johnson
It is likely that much of the fibre breakage occurring in rectilinear combing is closely related to the force or tension experienced by individual fibres, Computer-data-acquisition and strain-gauge techniques have been used to measure directly the forces encountered by individual fibres in the fringe during simulated combing. The effect on these forces of different factors, such as fibre length, combing speed, fringe density, etc., has been established.
