Abstract

Presents the results of investigation of fabrics’ and fused systems shrinkage force and its influence on the shape instability of fused textile systems after various treatments such as wetting and drying. Also the method for determination and prediction of the twisting phenomenon of fused composites is presented. From the analysis of the data the twisting phenomenon was characterised by several parameters. They are system’s twisting sign, the shape of twisted system, the twisting coefficient and fused system’s twisting direction.
