Objectives of the Course

To examine the physical test methods applied to textile materials in the form of fiber, yarn and fabric, the sampling methods to be applied for each test method, the methods of determining the fiber type and to evaluate the test results by statistical evaluation.

Course Content

Classification of textile materials, standard atmospheric conditions and their importance in textiles, sampling methods for fiber tests, fiber fineness and measurement methods, fiber recognition in microprojection, fineness and evaluation, fiber length measurement and measurement, staple diagram drawing, tensile strength and elongation measurement of fibers, bundle fiber strength, fineness, maturity, foreign matter content and other physical properties of cotton fiber, test by HVI system, number determination in yarns, determination of twist direction and number in yarns, tensile strength and elongation in yarn. The number of fine places in the yarn, the number of thick places, the amount of neps and the unevenness measurement. Causes of irregularity in yarn and determination of these sources. Yarn hairiness measurement, friction test on yarns. Determination of dimensional and structural properties of fabrics, tensile strength and elongation of fabrics, tear strength, stitch strength, seam drift, pilling test, friction resistance, measurement of weft and warp yarn frequencies. Detonation strength of knitted fabrics, determination of row-column frequencies. Measurement of thickness and weights of fabrics, water repellency and strength flammability test in fabrics.
