Abstract

The production of textured filament yarns by false twist texturing is an important commercial method that requires heating. In this study, the transient two dimensional modeling of the yarn, heated by high temperature heaters in a false twist texturing process was developed in order to investigate the influence of various heating conditions on the yarn temperature distribution and to quantify the relative contribution of thermal radiation to the total heating.
