|Title:||Comparison of Different Tearing Test Methods|
|Authors:||Sharma, I C|
|Abstract:||A comprehensive comparison of the major tear test methods in use (single rip test, tongue double rip test, wing rip test, trapezoid test, impact tear test and wound bursting strength test) has been made with the objective of assessing their relative merits and establishing correlations among them. The fabrics used for the purpose were polyester-viscose. Single rip test has been found to be the most suitable one for carrying out a tearing test. Single rip, double rip, and impact teat tests show similar performance and provide almost identical values of fabric characteristics, while the wing rip test differs only marginally. The trapezoid test shows a relatively poor correlation with these test methods, and the wound bursting method differs widely from them.|
