Determination of Wall Thickness and Perimeter by FMT and Diode Array HVI. Part 1: Data Analysis and Results

S.M. Buco, J.G. Montalvo, Jr., S.E. Faught, E. Stark, K. Luchter


Past research has indicated that a nondestructive VIS/NIR diode-array HVI measures the fundamental fiber properties of wall thickness and perimeter on blended cottons with precision equal to the primary methods used to calibrate the diode-array HVI. In this study, an improved Micromat model of the FMT is used as the reference to calibrate the diode-array HVI for use on unblended, raw cottons.
