The air-jet texturing process for synthetic continuous
multi-filament yarns is more versatile than any other texturing
process and provides the most effective simulation of natural staple
spun yarns. The process itself is inadequately understood, and the
ultimate goal of the work is to achieve a better understanding of the
mechanism of the texturing process and to make suggestions for more
efficient nozzle designs in order to increase productivity and
thereby reduce production costs. [Continues.]
