Abstract

The image analysis techniques developed in Part 1 to study microstructural changes in non-woven fabrics are applied to measure the fibre orientation distribution and fibre length distribution of hydroentangled fabrics. The results are supported by strength and modulus measurements using samples from the same fabrics. It is shown that the techniques developed can successfully be used to assess the degree of entanglement of hydroentangled fabrics regardless of their thickness.
