Abstract

Heat transfer properties of different woven fabric structures made from regenerated bamboo and lyocell yarns woven in different proportions have been studied. Five union fabrics have been produced using bamboo and lyocell yarns of 30s count in the proportion of 100:0, 75:25, 50:50, 25:75 and 0:100. Three types of woven structures, viz plain, 2/2 twill and 1/3 twill weaves are produced from each combination and then analyzed for their heat transfer properties. The thermal conductivity of the 100% bamboo woven fabric and the thermal insulation value of 100% lyocell woven fabric are found to be higher as compared to all other blends. The results are discussed with 95% significant level with multivariate ANOVA test results.
