Abstract:

In the present work, fabrics of intentionally changed structure were measured in the range of their basic structural parameters and thermal insulation properties. Cotton woven fabrics of different weaves, linear densities of the weft and different weft densities were the objects of the investigation. The thermal insulation properties of the fabrics were measured by means of an Alambeta. On the basis of the results, the influence of the fabric structure on values of particular thermal insulation parameters was analysed. Statistical analysis demonstrated that the weave and linear density of weft yarn significantly influence the thermal properties of woven fabrics. A strong and statistically significant correlation was found between the thermal insulation properties of the fabrics and such structural parameters as the average percentage filling and integrated fabric structure factor.
