Stochastic differential equation model for cotton fiber breakage
MetadataShow full item record
A stochastic differential equation (SDE) model is developed for fibers undergoing breakage during textile processing steps. The SDE model generalizes a classic deterministic model for fiber breakage. Furthermore, SDE model compares well with Monte Carlo computations for different fiber breakage phenomena. Also calculations with the SDE model exhibit a bimodal distribution in fiber lengths which is commonly seen in data.
