Single Fiber Strength at Different Extension Rates

Preston E. Sasser and Frederick M. Shofner


Principles of a novel method for quickly measuring single fiber breaking tension, elongation at break, and work-to-break were described. Results of extensive testing on 54 cottons at different extension rates were given. The single fiber tests, like the yarn prepared from these same samples, showed surprisingly little dependence on extension rate.
