In order to achieve the main objective of the program, this being the development of the engineering principles which are involved in the conversion of bulk, linear, fiver-forming polymers into usable fibers, it has been first necessary to design, fabricate, assemble and carry out break-in operations on an appropriate dry-spinning machine. In the reporting period, assembly and construction were carried out, and the final research dry-spinning machine was put through break-in trials. Photographs and line drawings, as well as one detailed drawing, provide the essential descriptive information on the equipment. A comprehensive literature survey, in preliminary form, is provided.
