An Analytical Model of Wool Crimp

Abstract:

Article Preview

A three-component analytical model for single fibre curvature is developed in terms of the axial contractions, elastic moduli and geometrical properties of wool fibre cells. The elastic moduli of wool cells and single fibre curvature of selected Romney wools are measured. Using axial contraction data from the literature, the mean single fibre curvature is computed and compared with the measured mean value. The simulation is about the same as the measured value when the para- to orthocontraction ratio is 1.7:1.
