(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...
Firefighters, workers in the oil and gas industry, electricians, and military personnel, for example, wear protective clothing made of fire-resistant fabrics constructed from high-performance fibers (1). For firefighters’ protective clothing, the outer shell is generally a blend of different...
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...
Data set for: McQueen et al., (2022) Unpicking the Gender Gap: Examining Socio-Demographic Factors and Repair Resources in Clothing Repair Practice. Recycling.
The protective clothing industry and workers at risk of exposure to heat and flame can rely on some high performance materials developed over the last fifty years to provide the protection needed while allowing some level of comfort. This includes a series of inherently thermal- and...
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,...
