Abstract This paper is a direct follow-up of the paper (1) describing in detail the VibTex equipment, which facilitates testing of textiles in a wide range of frequencies of their extension, as well as the determination of corresponding dynamic modules and loss angles. This equipment has been employed for testing polyester yarns of concordant fineness manufactured on ring and rotor spinning frames. At the same time, the material concerned has been subjected to a standard strength test. Therefore, the results of experimental measuring published in this paper allow us to assess the effect of the chosen spinning technology upon the mechanical properties of polyester yarns both at their static and dynamic loading. The introductory section of the paper contains a theoretical analysis of the effect of the chosen manner of spinning upon the mechanical characteristics of yarns. The experimental section indicates the results of measurements at static and dynamic loading, and the final section of the paper confronts the obtained pieces of knowledge with theory. This paper is part of a larger group of publications concerned with the behaviour of various linear textiles when exposed to dynamic loading (see (1), (2), (4), (5), (6)).
