JEFF issue explores important advances in nonwovens & engineered fabrics
Mar '09
As part of its continuing commitment to advancing research in the field of nonwovens and engineered fabrics, a special issue of the highly respected Journal of Engineered Fibers and Fabrics (JEFF) will be available online on March 27. The issue will focus exclusively on modeling and it will provide a snapshot of the current state of computational modeling in the field of engineered fibers and fabrics.

JEFF is an online technical magazine published by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, and is co-sponsored by TAPPI, the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry, The Fiber Society and AATCC (the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists).

According to JEFF guest editors, Hooman Vahedi Tafreshi and Behnam Pourdeyhimi, with the rapid advancement of our computational power researchers can now model many fiber manufacturing processes and fabric properties that once were only possible via cumbersome, time consuming, expensive and sometimes erroneous, experimentation. This special issue of JEFF explores a number of the more important advances in the field.

“The motivation for developing this issue was to inform our readers of current university and government computational research that may well be relevant to the needs of the industry,” according to Tafreshi and Pourdeyhimi. “In soliciting these contributions, utmost attention was paid to the novelty and newness of the research as well as brevity and conciseness of the information presented.”

The first four papers in the issue are on modeling properties of nonwoven materials when challenged with heat, mass, and particle flows or an external mechanical force. The collection concludes with a paper focused on modeling the challenging problem of fiber melt-spinning, in which a numerical simulation of multifilament semi-crystalline polymer fiber spinning based on a flow-enhanced crystallization approach is presented.
