It has been shown that the number of fibers, the porosity of the yarn and the proportion of fibers in the volume fraction of the yarn have a direct effect on the effective thermal conductivity and air permeability of the multifilament yarn. It was found that with the increase in the number of fibers, the porosity of the yarn decreases linearly, while the volume fraction of the fibers increases, and thus the effective thermal conductivity increases. In addition, air permeability decreases exponentially.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Polimery}, author={Siddiqui, Muhammad Owais Raza and Farooq, Salma and Husain, Muhammad Dawood and Faisal, Saira}, year={2023}, month={Feb.}, pages={6–18} }
