The main field of enquiry included the effect of interlacing on the tensile strength and the influence of changes in weft particulars on the strength of the warp. The result in all cases are expressed in terms of fabric assistance ratios which are of greater interest when dealing with the influence of component yarns on the fabric than direct strength values. Behaviour of continous filement yarns and cotton yarns in woven constructions was investigated and considerable differences in the basic pattern were discovered between the different materials. In addition to the sett and the weave structure it was found that the crimp factor exerted a distinct influence on the ultimate strength value. In this connection it was postulated that of considerable importance in the standard method of tensile strength was the ratio of crimp between longitudinal and transverse components of a fabric. A trellis type of jaw was constructed to test fabrics under conditions of homogeneous strain with the elimination of "waist" effects and comparisons were made between the two methods of test using identical specimens.
