Abstract: The lateral crushing of textile fibres and its consequent effect on tensile strength has been studied using an instrument designed indigenously for crushing the fibres in the transverse direction. The apparatus produces deformations dependent on the crushing load applied. The influence of crushing load on the tensile properties of cotton, viscose, acrylic, polyester and nylon monofilament is also studied. A loss in strength and elongation is observed after crushing which varies with the fibre type and morphology. It is found that the viscose sustains greater losses in tensile strength.
