Research Project: Studies of Moisture Movement in Cotton Fiber

Location: Cotton Structure and Quality Research

Project Number: 6435-44000-076-04
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Jan 01, 2009
End Date: Dec 31, 2010

Objective:
Create atomistic and coarse-grain models of cotton fiber and fabrics with water and simulate motion of water.

Approach:
Models of cellulose crystals developed at SRRC will be forwarded to the cooperators who will modify them or create other similar models to mimic cotton fibers or fabrics. These models will then be subjected to molecular dynamics simulations with water present.
