EXISTING MAJOR DATA BASES FOR WEAVING STUDIES

THE TWO DATA BASES USED BY THE POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE OF BROOKLYN IN CONDUCTING NCHRP PROJECT 3-15 ARE DISCUSSED. THE FIRST, COMPILED IN 1963 BY THE BPR, WAS BASED ON 41 EXPERIMENTS WITH SIMPLE WEAVING SECTIONS AND 15 WITH MULTIPLE WEAVING CONFIGURATIONS. FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE NCHRP STUDY THE BPR INFORMATION HAD CERTAIN LIMITATIONS THAT THE RESEARCH AGENCY SOUGHT TO OVERCOME THROUGH CREATION OF ITS OWN DATA BASE FROM EAST COAST LOCATIONS. PARTICULAR ATTENTION WAS GIVEN TO LEVELS OF SERVICE B AND C FOR 500--2000 FOOT WEAVING SECTIONS AND TO LEVELS D AND E FOR SECTIONS 1000--2000 FEET LONG.
