Smart Fibres, Fabrics and Clothing
Category: Books: Nonwovens/Technical Textiles
SMART FIBRES, FABRICS AND CLOTHING starts with a review of the background to smart technology and
goes on to cover a wide range of the material science and fiber science aspects of the technology
including: *electrically active polymeric materials and the applications of nonionic polymer gel
and elastomers for artificial muscles *thermally sensitive fibres and fabrics *cross-linked polyol
fibrous substratesstimuli-responsive interpenetrating polymer network hydrogel *permeation control
through stimuli-responsive polymer membranes *optical fibre sensors, hollow fibre membranes for gas
separation *integrating fibre-formed components into textile structures *wearable electronic and
photonic technologies *adaptive and responsive textile structures (ARTS) *biomedical applications
including the applications of scaffolds in tissue engineering.
