Prabir Kumar Banerjee obtained his bachelor's degree in textile technology from the College of Textile Technology, Serampore, West Bengal in 1966; master's degree in textile engineering from IIT Delhi in 1973; and doctorate from the erstwhile TH, Karl-Marx-Stadt of GDR in 1979. He has guided nine PhD students, published 36 papers in refereed journals, developed eight new products and processes, and holds three patents. He is a recipient of the lifetime contribution award from the International Geosynthetics Society (Delhi Chapter) and the Central Board of Irrigation and Power of India for contribution to the growth of geosynthetics in India.
"Most books in fabric formation technology are restricted to one
type of technology and lack comparison on the properties and
suitability for particular applications of the various technologies
available. The current book overcomes this limitation. In my
opinion this is the most correct way to teach the subject and the
one we have always adopted at the University of Minho. In this way
students and professionals may be trained to choose the most
appropriate fabric for particular end-uses without any bias."
-Mario de Araujo, University of Minho, Braga, Portugal"The book covers virtually the entire subject of textile fabric manufacturing, and represents one of the most comprehensive books on fabric manufacturing. It should prove to be a very useful and important textbook and reference manual for under graduate students and industry alike."
-Lawrance Hunter, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, Port Elizabeth, South Africa"A well-designed and quite innovative book that includes many important points related to fabric formation techniques. It will be a very helpful book for students, researchers, and engineers."
