Core bulk of wool fibres as a function of their curvature and diameter

Abstract:

The compressibility of a fibre mass affects processing and end-product performance. The compressibility of wool can be measured by compressing a sample of clean fibre in a cylinder with a standard weight. The specific volume of the sample after compression is termed its bulk, or core bulk if a short core bored sample is used. Prediction of core bulk from the standard simultaneous measures of fibre diameter and fibre curvature would reduce testing costs. This applies to all types of fibre asse...
