Effect of Silk Reeling Velocity on the Aggregation Structure of Raw Silk
The aggregation structure of raw silk which influences the mechanical properties of raw silk directly is not only determined by the properties of cocoon but also affected by silk reeling velocity. In this study, the relationship between aggregation structure of raw silk and silk reeling velocity was studied by means of sonic velocity method, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The study showed that orientation degree, crystallinity and mechanical properties of raw silk were remarkably influenced by silk reeling velocity, and the mechanical properties of raw silk would be improved through the reasonable silk reeling velocity.
