Understanding textile fractures

from SPE Plastics Research Online

The ability of fabrics to withstand tears can be easily predicted and understood in terms of their yarn and thickness. We have proposed a new tearing criterion based on fracture mechanical theory. The criterion can be used to calculate the fracture energy — also known as the tearing energy or strain energy density — above which textiles will tear. more
