Prediction of spun yarn strength at different gage lengths
TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD
In this article, the influence of tensile tester gage length on ring, rotor and air-jet spun yarns tenacity and its coefficient of variation have been investigated. A statistical model has been presented that correlates yarn tenacity and coefficient of variation of yarn tenacity to gage length. The model is based on Peirce model and assuming the three-parameter Weibull distribution of yarn strength values. A reasonable agreement has been shown between the experimental and predicted values. The model successfully captured the change in yarn strength and its coefficient of variation at different gage lengths. Results showed that at longer gage lengths, yarn strength decreases and its coefficient of variation decreases as well.
