Cotton yarn strength modelling and prediction has remained as the cynosure of research for the textile engineers. The strength of spun yarns is accepted as one of the most important parameters for assessment of yarn quality. Yarn strength decide the performance of post spinning operations; warping, weaving and knitting and the properties of the final textile structure; hence its accurate technical evaluation carries much importance in industrial applications. This paper dealswith the modeling and prediction of ring spun cotton yarn strength using a simple Monte Carlo techniques. The prediction accuracy of the model was found to be very encouraging
