Abstract

This paper presents a methodology for estimation of fibers distribution in fibrous mat. Distribution of fibers is important for the mechanical and electrical properties of created new materials. For this study, membranes of polyvinylidene fluoride and polyvinyl pyrrolidone nanofibers with different sizes and random orientation are prepared via electrospinning. The fiber distribution evaluation of the membranes was based on microstructure photos. The developed method can be used as a practical tool to estimate the distribution of fibers.
