Purpose This study aims to suggest opportunities for enhancing the police uniform design with consideration to the emotional and physical satisfaction of the wearers, by assessing the wearing experience. Design/methodology/approach University police officers at a University in the Midwestern region of the USA were surveyed to examine both psycholo...

Every community contributes to shaping society and hence merits a place in public history. Some communities are often excluded from knowledge-production due to the trivialization of their contributions or their marginalization. Such communities need to advocate for themselves and publish their own narrative. This project used a variety of research...

This paper describes innovative work in the manufacturing of carbon nanotube (CNT) fabric and tape and how these materials can be used in textiles and fashion apparel. The field of CNT fabric is new and this article discusses the potential commercial impact of CNT fabric, the manufacturing barriers that currently exist, and provides suggestions to...

Carbon nanotube hybrid textiles (CNHT) are produced from a carbon nanotube (CNT) gas phase pyrolysis floating catalyst process with particle injection. The CNT based metal and ceramic textiles produced can be customized for different applications. Research is underway by a large group of students and faculty members working in different disciplin...

Purpose This study aims to analyze the medical uniform wearers’ needs by surveying the current medical uniform sizing system and issues, and to evaluate fit satisfaction level of medical uniform wear by gender with scrub shirts, pants, and coats. Design/methodology/approach Research was conducted using a quantitative questionnaire, and the respo...

... The CNTs produced by this method are usually intertangled in a web wrapped onto a drum to produce CNT sheets. The macroscale CNT sheets have versatile properties and are a good candidate for forming hybrid materials [3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]. In this work, we will examine the integration of carbon fibers in the intertangled web of CNTs synthesized by the floating catalyst chemical vapor deposition method in a single-step process. ...
... If the instrument and testing procedures were established and defined, the wearers' and/or experts' fit perceptions could be effectively investigated (Ashdown and O'Connell, 2006;. Kim et al. (2017) investigated 24 male and 24 female medical staff members' fit preferences for medical uniforms, such as scrub shirts, pants, and coats. Even though "regular fit" was the most preferred fit for both women's and men's daily wear outside the hospital environment, they found that more men favored loosely fitted medical uniforms. ...
