Abstract : This report contains in tabular form the solutions of the equations for cover factor, beta factor, and maximum weavability for the entire practical range of cotton yarn counts, textures, and basic weave types--including the plain, oxford, 3- and 4-harness twills, and 5-harness sateen. The tables provide immediate solutions to those design parameters that are routinely used by the fabric designer and the textile engineer working on the geometry of textile structures. Included as appendixes are the text of the original report (by Love) which describes the derivation of the maximum weavability equations from Peirce's relationships, and also the computer program that was used for solving these equations for the practical range of textile variables.
