Compression behaviour of hand-tufted carpets: Part I–Effect of short-term static and dynamic loading

Choubisa, Bhavna ; Sinha, S K; Chattopadhyay, R


The effect of static and dynamic loading on the compression characteristics of hand tufted carpets has been studied using two types of pile materials. Wool tufted carpets are found to show better retention of thickness. Higher tuft density is found to assist retention of thickness, while higher pile height results in more thickness loss. Thickness loss is also found to be more at the initial impacts, while the recovery rate is found to be more at the initial stage
