Bursting strength: when the fabric is subjected to pressure, the fabric begins to expand in all the possible directions at the same time. When the applied pressure increases gradually, the fabric begins to burst after a pressure limit. This pressure limit is called bursting strength. Thus we can say that “the pressure required to burst the fabric surface is termed as bursting strength of fabric”. It is measured in pounds (lbs.) per inch2 or kilograms per centimeter2. The bursting strength of the fabric is the very important property for parachute fabric. Type of yarn and material used in the fabric, the count and construction of the fabric.
Material type influences the bursting strength of fabric greatly. The fabric woven with synthetic yarn has greater bursting strength than natural yarn.
