(Eventual) Stability and Change Across Partnerships
Does a new partnership differ from its preceding one? This study investigates whether relationship dynamics change as people transition from one partnership to another and examines a number of predictors that might explain variation in change trajectories. We draw on data gathered from 554 focal...
A quantitative method to compare the effect of thermal aging on the mechanical performance of fire protective fabricsDownload
A method has been proposed to provide a means to compare in a quantitative and comprehensive way the mechanical performance of fire protective fabrics under long‐term thermal exposure. These high‐performance materials experience a reduction in their performance overtime due to the various...
Aging of high-performance fibers used in firefighters' protective clothing: State of the knowledge and path forwardDownload
High-performance fibers developed since the 1960s have a wide range of appli-cations including firefighters' protective clothing. Firefighters' protective cloth-ing made of inherently flame-resistant high-performance fibers offers excellentprotection in the new condition. However, these fibers...
Electrical conduction of reduced graphene oxide coated meta-aramid textile and its evolution under aging conditionsDownload
High-performance textiles – such as those used in protective clothing – age silently, undergoing a gradual reduction in their protective properties. We propose that an electrically conducting layer that loses its conductivity systematically under aging conditions can be used as an...
The physical properties of weft knitted fabrics can be modified according to the fabric structure and the raw material used to manufacture the final fabric. This research demonstrates the influence of fiber types and fabric structure on some specific physical properties such as bursting strength,...
Fire-protective fabrics made from high-performance fibers are available to provide protection from various hazardous conditions such as extreme heat and flame. However, these fabrics are often exposed to other deteriorating conditions, including moisture. It is a concern for the user's safety as...
Tear strength is an important fabric characteristic used to evaluate the serviceability of textile materials and their suitability for particular end uses such as protective clothing. In this study, the effect of test specimen size on tear strength was analyzed. The aim was to determine...
Investigation of the Accelerated Thermal Aging Behavior of Polyetherimide and Lifetime Prediction at Elevated TemperatureDownload
Fire-protective clothing are manufactured using heat and flame resistant fibers that are made of high-performance polymers. These polymers exhibit a gradual reduction in their performance after long-term exposure under various aging conditions. This study investigates the thermal aging behavior...
Child welfare professionals (CWPs) have historically been ignored as a potential delivery system of relationship and marriage education (RME). Based on a sample of 1015 CWPs from two states, the current study shows that CWPs believe promoting healthy couple and marital relationships is relevant...
Drawing on 5 waves of multiple-informant data gathered from focal participants and their parents and intimate partners (n = 360 families) who completed annual surveys in the German Family Panel (pairfam) study, the present investigation examined bidirectional associations between the development...
