Abstract:Background: Polystyrene (PS) in the form of foam known as styrofoam, is widely used as a wrapping material for food, beverages, medicines and even as protective materials for electronic devices. However, styrofoam wastes are very difficult to decompose in nature and has caused some serious damages to environmental ecosystem. The purpose of this research was to study the effect of using glycerol as a plasticizer on the density and water uptake capacity of plastic film in the form of PS bioblend by mixing it with a biodegradable polymer, which was polycaprolactone.
Methods: The density were calculated by dividing the weight of the plastic film by its volume and the water uptake capacity which were.......

|Title||:||An Investigation of Surface Patterns, Spatiality and Pattern Relations in Textile Design|
|Authors||:||Binta Muhammad Ibrahim|
Abstract: This research focuses on surface patterns, spatiality, and pattern relations in textile design, and aims to explore surface patterns as spatial definers and what they mean in the context of surface patterns. Primary focus of the research relates to applying conceptual spatial determinations as alternative variables in pattern design processes, and exploring how these were used to define and analyse pattern relations. Series of exploratory design experiments were conducted using printed and projected surface patterns in a two and three-dimensional setting which was documented using photographs and films with pattern relations, wherein scale used as a design variable. The outcome of the experiments showed the expressional possibilities that surface patterns may provide in a defined.....
