Special Issue on Advances in Coatings

In the present special issue, we have focused on wear, fracture and fatigue properties in coating systems. We encourage researchers to submit their original articles, in which new, innovative and evaluable works have been performed, by both numerical and experimental techniques. Specifically, we are interested in researches that could be proposed in material characterizations and behavior evaluations of coatings under wear and fatigue phenomena, numerical and experimental techniques for coatings under wear and fatigue phenomena, applications of coatings in internal combustion engines and gas turbines, wear and friction phenomena in coatings, isothermal/un-isothermal fatigue behaviors in coatings, coating layers for improving fatigue properties and the wear resistance, depositing coatings by different spraying techniques, surface modifications with various types of coatings, etc.

Special Issue on Angora: From Fiber to Fabric

Angora is a keratinous textile material, produced by the long-haired Angora rabbit. The Angora rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) is raised solely for its fine and soft hair, unlike other breeds which are produced for their meat and fur. This fibre is one of the “luxury fine fibres”, which also include mohair, cashmere, and alpaca. These speciality wools only represent 3% of world clean wool production, but their price can be 10 to 30 times more than that of sheep wool. Several factors contribute to this difference, including their toughness, lightnesss, fineness, softness, and also their image and reputation. Although there are many articles related to the wool fibers, researches and articles on angora fiber processing are very limited. This special issue aims to put together research results of selected experts on this subject.

About the issue

The topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Analysis of fiber characteristics of angora wool;
  • Pre-treatments of angora rabbit wool;
  • Dyeing of angora rabbit wool;
  • Finishing of angora rabbit wool;
  • Yarn production from angora fiber;
  • Recent developments in weaving and knitting of angora yarns;
  • Comfort and thermal properties of fabrics produced from angora fiber.
