Long-Term Strain Measuring of Technical Textiles by Photographic Method


Article Preview

The technical textiles are very sensitive materials. To measure the elongation of such a material needs special care. A photographic procedure has been investigated to measure the plain elongation of textile specimens. It is especially suitable for long-term measuring programs. Some experimental results measured by the described method are published.
