Abstract: This paper presents the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) techniqueto determine the technological value of Egyptian cottons. Based on the high dimensional data of the Fiber Classifying System (FCS) instrument, the unique classes of cotton quality were drawn by k-means clustering.The materials used are lotsof different grades of Egyptian commercial cotton varieties that collected from cotton ginning mills across the country.The extra-long and fineness varieties outperform the rest of the varieties in terms of quality, and the classer gradeFG in each variety shows a great superiority over the rest of the grades.GFAHP can be used as quantitative criteria to describe........

Abstract: This research work was intended to analyze the effect of various sewing parameters on seam strength of chain stitched denim fabric. Three different types of sewing thread like 100% cotton spun with a 14-tex linear density, 100% polyester spun with a 24-tex linear density and 100% nylon spun with a 60-tex linear density were used in the study. All experimental tests were carried out according to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards. Two types of superimposed seams (SSa and SSb type) were employed in both warp and weft direction of the fabric. The samples were sewn with three different stitch densities like 7, 9, 11 SPI (stitch per inch). It was found that, different sewing parameters affect chain stitch seam strength in various dimension. In SSb type seam, higher seam strength was found for using coarser sewing thread (60tex) in the warp direction and 11 stitches per inch (SPI)..
