The report contains in tabular form the solutions of the maximum weavability equations for the plain, oxford, 3- and 4-harness twills, and 5- harness sateen in terms of warp and filling cover factors and yarn number ratio Beta for fabrics made from any fiber species and from blends. The tables are set up for yarn bulk densities ranging from 0.54 to 4.6 this includes fibers as light as polyethylene and as heavy as stainless steel. Supplementary tables are provided giving yarn bulk densities assuming a standard packing coefficient of 0.59 for all of the commercial fibers and for blends of the most important commercial fibers in increments of 5 ranging from 5 to 95 blend composition.
