Investigation of yarn twist propagation in rotor spinning

Research output: Chapter in book / Conference proceedingConference article published in proceeding or bookAcademic researchpeer-review


This paper proposed an integrated mechanical approach for yarn dynamics in rotor spinning, especially the twist propagation in the yarn forming process from fibers collected in a rotor groove to the twisted yarn at the twist stopper. Equations of dynamic equilibrium in different yarn forming regions were established, and further, expressed in terms of dimensionless variables. Then the yarn tension and twist distribution, considering the dynamic coupling effects between different regions under the steady spinning conditions, were numerically simulated, in which influences of various dimensionless parameters of rotor spinning on the yarn tension and twist distributions were discussed in details.
