Zeal to learn the subject
This subject includes the study of various physical properties like mechanical, tensile, electrical, optical, dielectric properties, etc. of all natural as well as synthetic textile fibres. It also includes the morphological studies of various textile fibres like cotton, wool, nylon, etc. It further involves different techniques to identify fibre structure i.e. X-ray diffraction, IR spectroscopy, etc.
Course Outcome
After learning the content of the subject the students will be able to:
1. Get detailed idea about morphological structure of different fibres.
2. Compare the structure of fibres with that of various properties of them.
3. Understand the behaviour of fibres towards any agencies like tensile load, source of light, etc.
4. Compare various properties of different fibres such that the best combination of blend can be developed depending on the requirement.
5. Utilise the techniques to obtain the functional groups present within the polymeric chain of them.
6. Understand the relation of fibre structure towards water absorbance and/or repulsion.
7. Know the effect of temperature on various synthetic fibre based on thermal studies.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
