3D shaped fabrics are widely used for producing technical applications including textile composites, medical textiles, and protective textiles. Textile engineers and material scientists have developed 3D textile preforms for composites, which are becoming more popular in many areas due to their light weight, dimensional stability, and high strength properties. Architecture of a textile preform can vary from a simple planar sheet to complex 3D shell shapes. This book aims to exploit the potentials of conventional looms for producing dome-shaped fabrics for technical applications, such as protective helmet, aircraft seat, motorcycle seat, and bullet-proof vest for women. Second objective of this research is to develop methods for evaluating the dome effect of fabrics. A dome tester has been developed in the research with the capability of measuring the dome formability and also the fabric mouldability. The results of both evaluation methods for the dome formability revealed that loose fabric structures lead to better dome formability for all fabric types. The results also showed that increasing the number of layers for the multi-layer fabrics has produced less obvious dome effects.

PREFACE - This comprehensive, modem encyclopedia of surfactant products has been compiled with the cooperation of the major national and international surfactant manufacturers in order to give the user quick and thorough information on each tradename product that is included. Information from thousands of brochures, technical bulletins, and data sheets has been gleaned in order to make a complete profile on each surfactant product available from one source-this three volume compendium. Though sometimes limited by the information provided by the manufacturers, in most instances, the chemical ingredients, properties, form, applications, etc. of each product are discussed in detail. The use of surfactants pervades almost every chemical industrial concern- including textiles, paints, pesticides, foods, cosmetics, pharamceuticals, etc. We hope that because of the universality of surfactants, this reference work will be able to serve as a useful tool to the many chemical engineers and salespeople here and abroad. We want to extend our thanks to Roberta Dakan for her dedication and tireless efforts in helping make this encyclopedia as accurate and consistent as possible. When the temperature at which properties such as viscosity, density, surface tension; solubilities, etc. is not included, a standard temperature of 25 C is to be assumed. The information in this publication is reliable to the best of our knowledge. We would be glad to be informed of any errors or omissions so that these can be integrated into subsequent editions of this encyclopedia.

The Conference Board of Canada defines innovation as a "process through which economic or social value is extracted from knowledge through the generation, development and implementation of ideas to produce new or improved products, processes and services." The Department of Trade and Industry, UK defines it as "the successful exploitation of new ideas". As far as India is concern, only small investment (0.9% of GDP) on R&D as compared to USA (2.7% of GDP) and China (2.08% of GDP). An illustration of the importance of new product development can be seen in the area of the TECHNICAL TEXTILES. Country's technical textiles market which is currently estimated at $14 billion is likely to reach a level of $32 billion by 2023( 20% growth per annum). However, this book is divided into four chapters. The first one deals with product development, second for design logic of textile products, third for simulation of specific properties or structures leading to design, fourth is for case studies related to product development. More than 20 case studies are are illustrated with reference in technical textiles to explore the possibilities of product development in technical textiles.
Braiding is the process of interlacing three or more threads or yarns in a diagonal direction to the product axis in order to obtain thicker, wider or stronger textiles or, in the case of overbraiding, in order to cover a profile. Braids are becoming the reinforcement of choice in composite manufacturing, and have found a range of technical applications in fields including medicine, candles, transport and aerospace. Building on the information provided in Prof. Kyosev's previous book, Braiding Technology for Textiles , this important title covers advanced technologies and new developments for the manufacture, applications and modelling of braided products.Part One covers the braiding of three-dimensional profiles, and includes a detailed overview of three-dimensional braiding technologies as well as chapters devoted to specific kinds of 3D braiding. Part Two addresses specialist braiding techniques and applications, and includes chapters reviewing the use of braids for medical textiles and candles. Part Three focuses on braiding techniques for ropes and Part Four reviews braiding for composites. The final part of the book considers modelling and simulation, and covers topics including overbraiding simulation, Finite Element Method (FEM) modelling and geometrical modelling.Covers advanced braiding techniques, technical applications, and modelling and simulation of braided textiles.Focused on the needs of the textile industry by offering suitable breadth and depth of coverage of a range of braiding manufacturing technology, applications and modelling techniques in a single volume.Written by an eminent team of authors, composed of leading scientists and developers in the field who have a wealth of relevant, first-hand experience in braiding, and edited by a high-profile editor who is an expert in his field.
The book deals with the physical and chemical modification of natural and synthetic fibres for technical applications. Natural fibres and synthetic fibres/ filaments are often inadequate to be used in technical textiles. The high level of moisture absorption of natural fibres, poor wettability by non-polar plastics, and insufficient adhesion between untreated fibres and the polymer matrix, result in poor properties in composites. Synthetic fibres often lack the required mechanical and thermal properties to be used for technical applications. The book will thus encompass methods to physically and chemically modify fibres for technical applications.

Good product designs merge materials, technology and hardware into a unified user experience, one where the technology recedes into the background and people benefit from the capabilities and experiences available. By focusing on functional gain, critical awareness and emotive connection, even the most multifaceted and complex technology can be made to feel straightforward and become an integral part of daily life. Researchers, designers and developers must understand how to progress or appropriate the right technical and human knowledge to inform their innovations. The 1st International Smart Design conference provides a timely forum and brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss issues, identify challenges and future directions, and share their R&D findings and experiences in the areas of design, materials and technology.This proceedings of the 1 st Smart Design conference held at Nottingham Trent University in November 2011 includes summaries of the talks given on topics ranging from intelligent textiles design to pharmaceutical packaging to the impact of social and emotional factors on design choices with the aim of informing and inspiring future application and development of smart design.
Colloquium on„Integrated Best Available Wastewater Management in the Textile Sector“September 19, 2018at Max-Planck-Institut für Festkörperforschung Lecture Hall 2D5, Heisenbergstraße 1, 70569 Stuttgart-BüsnauScientific Head: Dr.-Ing. Harald Schönberger University of Stuttgart Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Solid Waste Management (ISWA)Apart from cotton cultivation and the production of dyestuffs and optical brighteners, textile finishing – also called textile wet processing – is one of the environmental hotspots. The dominating emission mass stream from textile finishing is wastewater as practically all inorganic and most of the organic (more than 90 %) chemical compounds are discharged with wastewater. Emissions to air, although not negligible, and with solid wastes are of significant lower relevance. In addition, in many parts of the globe, water availability and water scarcity respectively are of increasing concern triggering the need to avoid, reduce or recycle textile wastewater.Against this background the colloquium will contribute to the development of integrated best available wastewater management practices in the textile sector. This comprises the minimisation of water, energy and chemicals consumption by process optimisation (process- and production-integrated measures) and the careful selection of chemicals products. The latter means that the chemical products should be free of substances which are non-biodegradable or which are toxic or do have a negative impact on aquatic life.As textile wastewater pollution cannot be fully prevented at source, the colloquium also focusses on its advanced and effective treatment with special consideration of its recycling in case of limited water availability or scarcity.The programme covers the aforementioned aspects. Well-known speakers will present latest technologies and technical concepts to the audience from textile finishing industries, retailers and brands, techniques providers, textile associations and authorities from national, regional and local level, GIZ and representatives of the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles.The colloquium is being organised by the “Forschungs- und Entwicklungsinstitut für Industrie- und Siedlungswasserwirtschaft sowie Abfallwirtschaft e.V. (FEI)” in cooperation with the Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Solid Waste Management (ISWA) of the University of Stuttgart and the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles.
