Abstract : Braided cords of nylon, polyester and polypropylene fibres were braided at high speed on concrete. Velocity, tension (controlling normal pressure) and time of abrasion were varied factorially. Response equations giving the dependence of abrasion on the factors were obtained for each cord. Correlation of calculated with experimental results ranged from 0.72 to 0.83, and the standard errors of the calculated strengths were about 30 kg for each cord. (Author)
