Abstract : Textile materials used by the armed forces are subjected to severe treatment in service and are known to fail in a number of ways due to chemical, photochemical, microbiological and mechanical factors. Before the extensive tropical operations of World War II introduced photochemical and microbiological degradation as prime factors leading to early loss of utility of our textile products, the major source of fabric failure was mechanical in nature. Included in the mechanical category are the following elements: tensile stress; flexing; compression; puncture; shear; dimensional instability due to the above actions, to laundering or to yarn slippage; snagging of yarns; and surface rubbing.
