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...
Repairing clothing is an important aspect of clothing care routines that can have a positive impact on the environment. This is because through repair the useful life of a garment is extended which can lead to a reduction of clothing waste. In this paper, I will present survey research of...
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...
Mediation and ANCOVA Models to Study the Influence of Solvent Retting Traits and Plant Physique on Bast Fiber Yield and Retting TimeDownload
The study aims in applying two statistical tools to analyze the retting behavior of plant stems for extracting bast fibers for industrial applications. At first, a mediation model is employed to investigate the first hypothesis of this work that involves studying the color response of the retted...
