The Effects of Fibre and Fabric Properties on Fabric Drying Times

Pagination or Media Count:
This study examined how fibre and fabric properties affect the drying time of a wide range of textile materials. It was found that the drying time of a fabric is independent of its fibre type and thus regain, but dependent on the amount of water initially in the fabric which depends to a great extent on the thickness of the fabric.
