It is well known that the tensile behaviour of a spun yarn depends largely on the caharacteristics and structural arrangements of its constituent fibres. An air-jet spun yarn consisting of a core of parallel fibres wrapped by sheath fibres, exhibits a fasciated yarn structure. Therefore, due to the marked structural differences, the responses to the tensile forces of these yarns are expected to be different. Further, the theoretical analysis of the tensile behaviour of a staple-fibre spun yarn is highly complex, mainly because of discontinuities at fibre ends. For instance, during the insertion of weft, whether by projectile or air jet, the yarn has to withstand accelerations of many thousands of times greater than that due to gravity. Hence it becomes important to understand the stress-strain responses of yarns under non-standard loading conditions vary over a range of strain rates. Hence the present paper is designed to understand the how the (Trevira CS) inherently flame retardant fibres were successfully processed on air-jet spinning system to produce 20 Ne & 30 Ne yarns. As regards the influence of high strain rate on yarn tensile characteristics, it is found that an increase in strain rate from 5 m/min to 400 m/min considerably increases the yarn tenacity but decreases the yarn breaking extension. The reduction in tenacity is significant at the 95% level of confidence in case 30 Ne pure Trevira-spun and its blended yarns. This paper is written to understand the effect of strain rate on the tensile behaviour of Trevira CS fibre.
