Prerequisite
Zeal to learn the subject
Rationale
This subject includes the complete physical and chemical analysis of textile fibres as per their textile applications. The analysis can be done at any stage whether fibre, yarn or fabric. Fibre blends can also be evaluated with the same techniques modifying them to certain extent.
Course Outcome
After learning the content of the subject the students will be able to:
1. Identify any unknown fibre sample even if will be present in blend form.
2. Determine various properties of synthetic fibres like saponification number, melting point, refractive index, etc.
3. Modulate the recipes for pretreatments determining the size content, wax content, etc.
4. Understand about the yarn numbering system to describe the fineness of textiles.
5. Measure the basic characteristics of fibres, yarns or fabrics like twist, EPI, PPI, GS, etc.

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.
