Electromagnetic Shielding Effectiveness of Conductive Knitted Fabrics
Electromagnetic waves are known to have harmful effects on human health. The aim of this project is to investigate the application of knitted textile materials for the purpose of protection against electromagnetic waves and the effect of raw material, yarn and fabric parameters on electromagnetic shielding properties extensively. To obtain conductive textile surfaces, copper and silver filaments were used with cotton by using an apparatus on ring spinning machine.By using conductive yarns single jersey, rib,
and futter (2 threads) knitted fabrics were produced. Cotton fabrics were also produced for comparison.
