Article
Full-text available
Transport of liquid water is one of the basic producer requirements to ensure the suitable physiological comfort of drivers. This paper deals with the investigation of car seat covers’ efficiency from the point of view of their moisture management. Two methods were used for the evaluation of moisture transport in the car seat cover structures. Both...

The study investigates retroreflective fabrics’ efficiency from the point of view of the interaction of their visibility, thermo-physiological comfort properties, and durability (represented by physical-mechanical performance). The effect of the combination of two production technologies (reflective transfer films and screen printing method) and tw...
Article

This paper deals with investigating performance of car seat fabrics in terms of their compression and recovery properties and physiological comfort of sitting. Polyurethane foam, nonwoven and 3D knitted spacer fabrics are commonly used as padding (in middle layer) in car seats cover. The current work presents an alternative approach to evaluate eff...
Article
The present study is focused on the investigation of liquid moisture transport in textile materials by means of thermography and microtomography systems. The new vertical wicking method which combines the thermography system and the image analysis system is presented in this study. Further, porosity analysis of knitted fabrics by microcomputed tomo...
Article
The subject of this article is the evaluation of thermophysiological comfort of clothing under influence of flowing air. For this purpose a special device has been created, which is capable of generating an air flow of variable velocities. Under these conditions the values characterizing thermal insulating properties of the textile material sample...
Article
Utilization of the space warp knitted fabric and their combination with different non-textile materials increases in many areas of life nowadays. These materials are highly porous with excellent thermal properties. This paper presents an experimental investigation on the thermal behaviour and porosity of the sandwich structures defined for the prod...
Article

Investigating the liquid moisture transport and thermal properties is essential for understanding physiological comfort of clothes. This study reports on an experimental investigation of moisture management transport and thermal transport on the physiological comfort of commercially available socks. There are subjective evaluation and objective mea...
Article
Full-text available
This paper deals with the investigation of the performance of car seat fabrics in terms of physiological comfort of sitting, specifi cally their water vapour resistance and air permeability. The current work presents an alternative approach to increasing the effectiveness of car seat fabrics through a combination of newly designed middle layer with...
Article
Full-text available
Wrinkle free fabric at low cost is always a desirable aesthetic property. Different type of resins/finishes and pre-heat setting prior to processing are applied to avoid wrinkles in woven and hosiery, respectively. Current study is proposed to produce wrinkle free circular plaited knitted fabric by the elimination of a pre-boarding step. In this ac...
Article
Full-text available
This study examined the effects of ultrasonic welding parameters on bond strength, seam thickness and seam stiffness, as well as water permeability. For study purpose, two types of four-layered fabrics with same compositions and different areal densities suitable for inner part of sport shoes were used. Two different types of seams, lapped and supe...

This study evaluates the efficiency of non-flammable functional underwear used as a secondary heat barrier in extreme conditions. Five groups of knitted fabrics were analysed for flame resistance and selected physiological properties (water vapour permeability, air permeability, thermal resistance and liquid moisture transport by moisture managemen...
Article
This study deals with the effect of dye-sublimation printing on the performance of underwear. Two groups of polyester knitted fabrics were analysed. The change of tree selected groups of properties was investigated before and after the application of dye-sublimation printing, namely durability (breaking force and elongation, abrasion resistance and...
Article
Porosity represents one of the parameters of knitted fabrics, which significantly affects their air permeabi lity and thus the overall physiological comfort of knitted clothes. X-ray computed microtomography (μCT) is a relatively new but not yet widely used method for studying textile porosity. The paper discusses the use of a 3D image of the texti...
Article
Liquid moisture transmission through textiles plays an important role in the physiological comfort of functional clothing design. This paper focuses on the spread of liquid moisture in textiles by means of a new measurement method. This research allows to observe the speed of liquid moisture absorbtion by examined materials in real time (e.g. human...
Article
Currently, there is an increasing demand for maternity wear; this has created the need for research into its pattern design. The first step in this research is to determine the procedure needed to take measurements of the female body, to record any anatomical changes during pregnancy. The resulting anthropometric data is processed by statistical me...
Article
This study deals with the effect of anatomical changes in the female body during maternity on pattern designs for maternity wear. First, the bodies of 30 pregnant women in the third trimester of pregnancy were measured and correlation between these measurements was analyzed. Typology of pregnant figures (bodies) was determined (weight gain up to 12...
Article
In the present study is described assessment method of constructional allowance for looseness to the horizontal dimensions with regards to the looseness of clothing and sequence of the clothing layers. It is suitable for the modification of entrance parameters for automatic construction of clothing by the help of CAD systems. This method is present...
Article
The research will be performed in the following areas: Surface properties of textile formations, non-linear deformations of fabric Computer simulation of impact surface parameters of the planispheric textile fabric to their chosen macroscopic properties. This is made with the aim of predicting and optimising these properties. Provide evolution for...
Article
