Abstract:

This report is a survey of recent work on the wear resistance of military textiles. It summarizes studies made on test methods and wear mechanisms, and includes the results of some practical wear trials. Two new instruments are described. One measures the snagging resistance of textiles and the other measures an abrasive type of wear action which appears to correlate with combat usage. Wear trials on cotton, wool, and blended fabrics are described and the status of correlation studies of laboratory and field wear are reviewed.
