Influence of physi
Influence of physical properties of Indian cottons on their bundle tenacity and strength uniformity
The fibre bundle tenacity and strength uniformity have been determined at 0, 1.6, 3.2, 4.8 and 6.4 mm gauge lengths for some Indian cottons differing widely in physical characteristics. The results show that the longer and finer cottons are more uniform in strength. Significant positive correlation is found between bundle tenacity and 2.5% span length at higher gauge lengths, while linear density and fibre maturity exhibit significant negative correlation with bundle tenacity at higher gauge lengths.
