About this book


In this book, experts on textile technologies convey both general and specific informa­tion on various aspects of textile engineering, ready-made technologies, and textile chemistry. They describe the entire process chain from fiber materials to various yarn constructions, 2D and 3D textile constructions, preforms, and interface layer design. In addition, the authors introduce testing methods, shaping and simulation techniques for the characterization of and structural mechanics calculations on anisotropic, pliable high-performance textiles, including specific examples from the fields of fiber plastic composites, textile concrete, and textile membranes. Readers will also be familiarized with the potential offered by increasingly popular textile structures, for instance in the fields of composite technology, construction technology, security technology, and membrane technology.

Textile materials and semi-finished products have widely varied potential characteristics, and are commonly used as essential elements of innovative, resource-efficient, lightweight and high-tech applications.

About the editors

Prof. Dr.-Ing habil. Dipl.-Wirt. Ing. Chokri Cherif graduated in Mechanical Engineering from RWTH Aachen, specializing in Textile Engineering. He obtained his doctorate in 1998, followed by his habilitation in 2001, both from RWTH Aachen. During his ensuing employment in the industry at Rieter Ingolstadt Spinnereimaschinenbau AG, he held several high-responsibility positions, e.g. as Head of Development and Construction, and as a member of the company management board, Business Unit “Draw frame”. Since October 2005, Professor Cherif has been Director of the Institute of Textile Machinery and High- Performance Material Technology (ITM) at TU Dresden, also holding the professorship for Textile Technology at ITM. Currently, Professor Cherif is involved in several large-scale projects (e.g. SFB 639, Initiatives of Excellence of the Free State of Saxony “ECEMP”, EU projects, Federal Initiatives of Excellence, “Zwanzig20” Initiatives of the Federal Ministry of Research and Technology). Professor Cherif has authored more than 750 scientific publications and more than 100 patents.
