Abstract

A modification of the two-flux model of Kubelka–Munk was proposed for the description of light propagating through a fiber-air mixture medium, which simplified fibers’ internal reflection as a part of the scattering on the total fiber path length. A series of systematical experiments demonstrated a higher consistency with the reference quantity distribution than the common Lambert law on the fibrogram used in the textile industry did. Its application in the fibrogram for measuring the cotton fiber’s length was demonstrated to be good, extending its applicability to the wool fiber, the length of which is harder to measure than that of the cotton fiber.
