Application of life cycle assessment to sheep production systems: investigating co-production of wool and meat using case studies from major global producers
PurposeMethodology of co-product handling is a critical determinant of calculated resource use and environmental emissions per kilogram (kg) product but has not been examined in detail for different
Human wetness perception of fabrics under dynamic skin contact
This experiment studied textile (surface texture, thickness) and non-textile (local skin temperature changes, stickiness sensation and fabric-to-skin pressure) parameters affecting skin wetness
The Thermal Insulation Properties of Spacer Fabrics with a Mechanically Integrated Wool Fiber Surface
In relation to the engineering of compression resistant thermal insulation materials, an unconventional application of hydroentangling technology is introduced in which, lightweight, wool webs are
High performance textiles for protective clothing
Abstract: In this chapter, the characteristic physical properties of high performance textile materials are reviewed, and examples of their applications in the engineering design of protective
Anisotropic liquid absorption in homogeneous two-dimensional nonwoven structures
The anisotropy of liquid absorption is influenced by the fiber orientation distribution in the fabric plane. A unique theoretical analysis of planar fluid transport using D’Arcy’s law with
Capillary pressure and liquid wicking in three-dimensional nonwoven materials
The capillary pressure and liquid wicking in fibrous nonwoven materials depend on the structural arrangement of fibers in three dimensions, which is influenced by the method and conditions used to
Directional Permeability in Homogeneous Nonwoven Structures Part II: Permeability in Idealised Structures
The application of a newly derived model of directional permeability, presented in Part I of this series of papers, is described for a range of specific fibre-orientation profiles. A consideration of
