List of ASTM Testing Standards for Textiles


Different types of test standards are followed to measure the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of textile materials such as fibres, yarns, fabrics, as well as the cloths. The fibres being tested may be natural or man-made fibres. In addition, fabrics can be produced by various fabric production techniques like knitting, weaving, non-weaving. Textile testing …

Poisson’s Ratio

Poisson’s ratio? When a sample of material is stretched in one direction it tends to get thinner in the lateral direction – and if a sample is compressed in one direction it tends to get thicker in the lateral direction. Poisson’s ratio is defined as the ratio of the change in the width per unit …

Properties of Textile Materials

Different types of materials are regularly being used in a wide variety of applications. Materials are chosen based on the properties they offer. There are mainly 3 (three) types of properties materials usually possess. Currently intensive research is underway to characterize the different types of materials properties. Because almost, all the new things have been …

Principles of Tensile Testing

Principles of Tensile Testing:  There are three ways to carry out the tensile test: 1. Constant rate of extension (CRE): The rate of elongation of the test specimen is kept constant and the load is applied accordingly. 2. Constant rate of loading (CRL): Here, the rate of increase of the load is kept uniform with …

Tensile loading | Elastic and Plastic deformation.

Elastic and plastic behaviour during tensile loading: when the material is subjected to the tensile force, initially material shows some elastic behaviour where it goes back to the original position upon removal of the force. The successive loading causes the plastic deformation where material cannot revert to the exact original position. And further loading finally …
