The aim of this study is to analyze and determine the pull-out properties of para-aramid woven fabrics. Para-aramid Kevlar29 (R) and Kevlar129 (R) woven fabrics were used to conduct the pull-out tests. They have high and low fabric densities. A yarn pull-out fixture was developed to test various fabric sample dimensions. Data generated from single and multiple yarn pull-out tests in various dimensions of Kevlar29 (R) and Kevlar129 (R) woven fabrics included fabric pull-out forces, yarn crimp extensions in the fabrics and fabric displacements. The regression model showed that yarn pull-out forces depend on fabric density, fabric sample dimensions and the number of pulled ends in the fabric. Yarn crimp extensions depend on the crimp ratios of the fabric and fabric density. Fabric displacements depend on fabric sample dimensions and the number of pulled yarns. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
