How does the chemical arrangement of polymers influence the strength of a fiber?
Cross Section is an important predictor of properties like luster or bulk.
Diameter is another physical property of fibers we must consider.
Long fibers, called filaments, have different properties than short fibers.
We pick up with the slide that separates fibers into several categories.
The performance dimension of environmental resistance includes a whole variety of properties.
Performance properties such as comfort as actually a dimension of performance made up of several properties, including absorbency.
Our first lecture focuses on the properties of fibers that make the textiles we make out of these fibers behave in different ways.
