Fiber process–structure–property relationships

Michael Jaffe, Anthony J. East, Xianhong Feng

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The purpose of this discussion of fiber process–structure–property relationships is to illustrate the power of thermal analysis (TA) in the understanding and characterization of the complex processing history that is reflected in the nano–micro–macro structures of fibers, as well as the key structural and property parameters that define fiber performance. What is emphasized is the relationship between process conditions, fiber structure formation, and TA techniques. While the examples given relate to specific synthetic fibers with diameters of microns to a few tens of microns, the structure of all fibers (high-aspect-ratio materials of more or less circular cross section) will have similar features, and the relationship of morphology to properties is independent of formation conditions.
