Effects of yarn size and blood drop size on wicking and bloodstains in textiles


By: R. Baby n, S. Michielsen n & J. Wu n

author keywords: bloodstains; knit fabrics; porcine blood; textiles; wicking; yarns
TL;DR: Three single jersey knit fabrics were manufactured from 100% cotton ring‐spun yarns of linear densities of 12, 20, and 30 Ne and all stains were highly altered due to wicking of blood. (via Semantic Scholar)

Nondestructive quantitative evaluation of yarns and fabrics and determination of contact area of fabrics using x-ray micro-computed tomography system for skin-textiles friction analysis

ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, 13(3), 4652–4664.

By: R. Baby n, K. Mathur n & E. DenHartog n

author keywords: textile characterization; contact area; friction; comfort; skin injury; X-ray microcomputed tomography (XRM-CT)
MeSH headings : Biomechanical Phenomena; Cotton Fiber / analysis; Equipment Design; Friction; Humans; Image Processing, Computer-Assisted / instrumentation; Skin Physiological Phenomena; Textiles / analysis; X-Ray Microtomography / instrumentation
TL;DR: The fiber area % as reported in this paper can be used to evaluate the skin-textile interfaces and quantitatively determine the contact area under different physical, mechanical, and microclimatic conditions to understand the actual skin- textile interaction during any physical activity or sports.

Impact Spatter Bloodstain Patterns on Textiles


By: J. Wu n, S. Michielsen n & R. Baby n

author keywords: forensic science; impact spatter; bloodstain pattern analysis; textiles; rattrap; porcine blood
MeSH headings : Animals; Blood Stains; Forensic Medicine / methods; Microscopy; Models, Biological; Photography; Swine; Textiles
TL;DR: It was found that blood that deposited on the fabric wicked only in the direction of the fibers at that location within the fabric which led to distorted stain shapes, and fewer observed impact spatter stains were found on cotton jersey knits for fabrics made with larger yarns than on paper.
