New Book by NC State Textile Engineering, Chemistry, and Science Professor

Fundamentals of Fiber Science by Xiangwu Zhang.

Fundamentals of Fiber Science
Fundamentals of Fiber Science

  • Connects fiber chemistry and structure to properties that can be designed and engineered
  • Micro- and nanoscale, synthetic and natural polymer and non-polymer fibers explained with applications to industrial, electronic, biomedical and energy Information pertinent for fiber, textile, composite, polymer and materials specialists

Fundamentals of Fiber Science provides the basic chemical and mathematical theory needed to understand and modify the connections among the structure, formation and properties of many different types of manmade and natural fibers. At a fundamental level it explains how polymeric and non-polymeric fibers are organized, how such fibers are formed, both synthetically and biologically, and how primary and secondary properties, from basic flow to thermal and electrical qualities, are derived from molecular and submolecular organization, thus establishing the quantitative and predictive relationships needed for fiber engineering. Fundamentals of Fiber Science goes on to show how fiber chemistry and modes of processing for dozens of materials such as silks, ceramics, glass and carbon can be used to control functional optical, conductive, thermal and other properties. Its discussion ranges over microscale and nanoscale fibers (nanofibers), covering methods such as spinning and electrospinning, as well as biological fiber generation through self-assembly. Technologies in this text apply to the analysis and design of fibers for industrial, electronic, optical, medical and energy storage applications.

Xiangwu Zhang

Dr. Xiangwu Zhang, Associate Professor in the College of Textiles at North Carolina State University, joined the faculty in 2006. He earned a B.S. in Polymer Materials and Engineering in 1997 and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering in 2001, both from Zhejiang University, China, and currently serves as the Associate Department Head and Director of Graduate Programs in the Department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry, and Science.

Dr. Zhang’s research interests focus on nanostructured and multifunctional polymer, composite, fiber, and textile materials with an emphasis on practical applications:

  1. energy storage and conversion,
  2. chemical and biological protection,
  3. composites, and
  4. nanofinishing.

His research encompasses both fundamental materials studies such as synthesis and physical characterization, as well as system design and fabrication.
