Course Description:
Fibrous Materials

Definition and classification of Chemical fibres, Principles of different spinning systems, Different fibre structures and their
effects on fibre properties.,Technologies of formation of regenerated fibres. Their properties and uses: Different types of
viscose and acetate rayons, derivatives of cellulose, different types of regenerated protein fibres.,Technologies of formation
of synthetic fibres, their properties and uses: Polyamides, Polyesters, Polyacrylics, Polypropylenes, PVA, PVC and
elastomeric fibres.Formation of carbon fibres, Bi/Multi-component fibres, glass fibres and metallic fibres, their properties,
their properties and uses.Present trends of chemical fibres production and their economic and social aspects.

Textile Physics
Electrical properties : Electronic properties of solids, conductors and insulators, capacitance, di-electric constant, effect of
moisture. Measurement of di-electric constants of fibres, yarns and fabrics.
Static electricity formation : Theories of static electrification, measurement of static charge, explanation of the phenomenon
of static electrification in textile, its effect and remedies in textile processes.
Engineering approach to fibre structure, Mechanics of simple yarn structure, effects of fibre properties and yarn twist on
torsional and flexural rigidity. Effect of fibre length, fineness, strength and moisture on yarn strength. Yarn geometry, effect
of yarn strength (obliquity effect) luster, yarn diameter and handle.,Fibre migration, theory and causes of migration of fibres
to surface or core of yarn.Geometry of plain woven fabrics, calculation knowing crimp ratio and thread spacing, Geometry of
jumped conditions, crimp interchange, effect of yarn flattening, deformation of fabric. Application of cloth geometry, Tensile
testing, geometrical change during extension of fabrics. Fabric buckling, shear and drape, Geometry of plain knitted
structure.Engineering design of fabric to meet specific mechanical properties. Prediction of tensile properties of fabrics.
Course Format:
The course will include a combination of class, discussion, lecture and student assignment (home work,
quiz/Class test, presentation and semester final examination.)

Evaluation Scheme:-
Class participation 10%
(Attendance, assignments and activities in the class)
Quizzes/Class Tests 20%
Semester Final Examination (3 hours duration) 70%
Grading System:-
University grading policy will be followed and the policy is as follows:

Numerical Grade Letter Grade Grade Point

80% or above A+ (A Plus) 4.00
75% to less than 80% A (A Regular) 3.75
70% to less than 75% A- (A Minus) 3.50
65% to less than 70% B+ (B Plus) 3.25
60% to less than 65% B (B Regular) 3.00
55% to less than 60% B- (B Minus) 2.75
50% to less than 55% C+ (C Plus) 2.50
45% to less than 50% C (C Regular) 2.25
40% to less than 45% D 2.00
Less than 40% F 0.00

1. Academic misconduct:- All students are expected to complete assignments by themselves, plagiarism
the presentation of work, idea or creation of another person as your own is a form of cheating and is a
very serious academic offence and includes assisting or allowing another person to plagiarize or to copy
your own work.

2. Class Attendance: - Attendance is a mandatory. Basis for awarding marks for class participation and
attendance will be as follows:

Attendance Marks
90% or above 10%
85% to less than 90% 9%
80% to less than 85% 8%
75% to less than 80% 7%
70% to less than 75% 6%
65% to less than 70% 5%
60% to less than 65% 4%
Less than 60% 0%

3. Class Test: - It is a classroom test and the schedule is pre-announced by the Head. Short or MCQ type
question will be provided to answer. Materials of the class test would be announced before the scheduled
test date.

4. Advising and Assistance:- Students are responsible for contacting the course teacher when having
trouble in understanding the handout or study material or requirement for the course during office hours.
