- provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of woven fabric structure including geometrical modeling
- examines mechanisms of woven fabric structure featuring shrinkage, buckling, bending and creasing behaviour of textiles
- illustrates mathematical modeling and building predictive models for textile product design incorporating validation and testing
- reviews practical applications in industries ranging from medical textiles to sport and automotive textiles
Understanding and predicting the structure and properties of woven textiles is important for achieving specific performance characteristics in various woven applications. Woven textiles are used in a range of products such as apparel, technical and industrial textiles. Woven textile structure: Theory and applications provides comprehensive coverage of the structure, behaviour, modeling and design of woven fabrics and their relevance to the textile industry.
The first group of chapters review the fundamental principles of woven fabric structures. Part two discusses the mechanics of woven fabrics, topics include shrinkage in woven fabrics, yarn behaviour in woven fabrics and bending behaviour of woven fabrics. Part three presents a selection of chapters on design engineering of woven fabrics, themes such as textile product design methods and modelling for woven fabric design are covered. A final group of chapters is dedicated to addressing practical applications of woven fabrics.
