In the present world, noise is a vital area of research. As noise causes a lot of problems in day-to-day life, it is important to control unwanted noise. A lot of products were invented for reducing noise. These materials are used in a wide variety of applications. The influence of pore size, fibre type, source, intensity, distance of the fabric from sound
Clothing is one of the three basic needs of humans. Since the primitive age, man has been using textile for clothing in the forms of sailcloth, tent, ropes and other protective garments. However, back then textile was used only for technical performance. Today, technology has become so advanced and adaptive that there are materials that sense and react accor
Genetically engineered clothes. The fashion and technology sectors have been buzzing lately about high-tech fabrics obtained from biomaterials and genetically engineered microorganisms.
The Future Of 3D Printed Materials And Design - This WTVOX Research Impact presents a new path towards 3D printed fashion, through transformations that affect both, materials and design.
Tissue engineering is a scientific field that refers to the practice of combining scaffolds, cells and biologically active molecules to form functional tissues. The knowledge from this area can be used to facilitate clinical procedures involving repair of damaged tissues and organs. In addition to natural biomaterials, which include collagen, gelatin, silk
The primary function of smart clothing is to sense external or a given stimuli and to respond accordingly. Stimuli can be in the form of electromagnetic radiation-ultra-violet (UV), visible or infra-red (IR); chemicals like moisture and ions; mechanical energy like pressure, break and twist. Response can be linked to shape-swelling or shrinking.
Clothing is no more a draped material over human body for protecting it from weather conditions. It has many more functions: a status symbol, beautifying agent, personality developer and in an era of smart clothing, it can also be a fitness guide, caretaker and a multitasking device. Smart clothing is different from basic clothing in terms of the functions.
