Based on over 25 years of research at the University of Manchester Institute of Science & Technology, Atlas of Fibre Fracture and Damage to Textiles contains more than 1,500 scanning electron micrographs and other pictures, offering a unique collection of documentary information. The explanatory text presents fibre and polymer scientists an explanation of fracture mechanisms and outlines way to maximize textile life span, enabling textile technologists and design engineers to manufacture improved textile products, and helping forensic scientists to identify cause of failure.
