Subject content On-line and off-line control. Testing on samples – requests on sample for testing and sampling, reliability and repeatability of measuring results. Standard atmosphere for testing and preparation of test samples. Testing of dimensional and morphological characteristics of yarns and threads: construction, fineness, twisting, unevenness, friction properties, strength, elasticity, determination of stiffness. Testing quality of textile fabrics: production, dimensional and construction characteristics, porosity and drape, strength, elasticity, deformation.determination of the slippage, seam tensile properties, abrasion resistance, pilling, crease resistance, static electricity, water repellency, water resistance, flame resistance.
Aim of course Getting (obtaining) cognition about necessity of exactly and objective evaluation properties and quality of textiles. Promoting ability of application fundamental engineers knowledges in evaluation of textile. Mastering with methodology and techniques implementation of testing heterogeneousness properties textile materials for production clothes and evaluation on foundation results of testing. Mandatory knowledge for further personal evolution.
