Comparative investigations of new regenerated cellulosic fibers, bamboo viscose fiber and Tencel, together with conventional
viscose fibers have been carried out to explain the similarity and difference in their molecular and fine structure. The analyses
jointly using SEM, XRD and IR reveal that all the three fibers belong to cellulose II. Tencel consists of longer molecules
and has a greater degree of crystallinity, while bamboo viscose fiber has a lower degree of crystallinty. TG-DTG-DSC study
shows three fibers resemble in thermal behavior with a two-step decomposition mode. The first step is associated to water
desorption, suggesting that bamboo viscose fiber holds better water retention and release ability, the second a depolymerization
and decomposition of regenerated cellulose, indicating that Tencel is more thermally stable in this process than bamboo and
conventional viscose fiber.

Lyocell, modal and
viscose fibers were subjected to mercerization or to solar degradation. The
ulterior thermal degradation was analyzed by means of differential scanning
calorimetry (DSC). Thermal analysis shows wide exothermic processes that began
between 250 and 300C corresponding to the main thermal degradation and
are associated to a depolymerization and decomposition of the regenerated
cellulose. Thermal degradation was analyzed as a function of concentration
and time. Lyocell fiber is the most stable under thermal degradation conditions.
Furthermore, mercerized samples are initially more degraded and present a
lower thermal stability.

In this study, non-linear behavior of steel frames with dual lateral loader system with convergent crossing and chevron bracing equipped with linear and non-linear liquid viscose dampers in 8 and 12 story models as 2D under the record of near and far field to fault earthquakes are studied, evaluated and compared. For doing time history non-linear analyses, non-linear analysis software of Perform-3D has been used. This research absolutely confirms that viscose dampers reduces structure's responses under the effect of near and far field to fault records in a way that using non-linear viscose dampers in dual steel frames, the rate of created reduction is under the effect of near field records and more.

Summary New regenerated cellulose fibers were developed during the last decades as environmentally friendly systems. In this work, three fibers: lyocell, modal and viscose were subjected to an enzymatic treatment. Likewise, different lyocell fibers were washed in a Na2CO3 solution under severe conditions. Analysis was performed by means of differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetry and scanning electron microscopy. In all samples, at low temperature, water desorption was detected. Furthermore, thermal analysis shows wide exothermic processes that began between 250 and 300°C corresponding to the main thermal degradation and it is associated to a depolymerization and decomposition of the regenerated cellulose. It is accompanied with mass more than 60% mass loss. Kinetic analysis was performed and activation energy values 152-202 kJ mol-1 of the main degradation process are in agreement with literature values of cellulose samples.
The usual determination of formaldehyde by gravimetry and spectroscopy extends down to 10−3 mg with only limited reproducibility. Radiochemical analysis using14C-labelled formaldehyde allows to determine amounts of 10−4 to 10−5 mg. This technique was, therefore, applied to detect reliably the amount of formaldehyde proportional to the activity in
viscose rayon, spun in a formaldehyde containing spinning bath by using an ionisation chamber assay. The objects investigated
were found to contain 2·10−5 mg to 1.4·10−4 mg formaldehyde, the relative error being lower than 4%. The scope of application of this method is discussed.
