Fibers usually experience tensile loads whether they are used for apparel or technical structures. Their form, which is long and fine, makes them some of the strongest materials available as well as very flexible. This book provides a concise and authoritative overview of tensile behavior of a wide range of both natural and synthetic fibers used both in textiles and high performance materials. After preliminary chapters that introduce the reader to tensile properties, failure and testing of fibers, the book is split into two parts. Part 1 examines tensile properties and failure of natural fibers, such as cotton, hemp, wool, and silk. Part 2 discusses the tensile properties and failure of synthetic fibers ranging from polyamide, polyester, and polyethylene fibers to carbon fibers. Many chapters also provide a general background to the fiber, including the manufacture, microstructure, factors that affect tensile properties as well as methods to improve tensile failure. With its distinguished editor and array of international contributors, Handbook of Tensile Properties of Textile and Technical Fibers is an important reference for fiber scientists, textile technologists, and engineers, as well as those in academia.
