Rheological Modeling of the Dorlastan Core Spun Yarns for Various Dorlastan Drafts and Yarn Counts
The mechanical behaviour of the Dorlastan® core spun yarns having different counts (100, 50, 33.33 and 25 tex) and various elastane drafts is modeled in this paper. The theoretical analysis is based on the response of the elastic core spun yarn to the tensile and the relaxation tests at different strain levels. These tests have permitted us to identify the non linear viscoelastic behaviour of the Dorlastan® core spun yarn. Analogical approach is employed to propose the rheological model describing the mechanical behaviour of the elastic core spun yarns.
