Several centrifugation scenarios enabling the determination of soil parameters for saturatedunsaturated flow in porous media are presented, investigated, and discussed. Only global characteristics of the infiltration process in a sample are used, so that only simple, noninvasive measurements are performed. The characteristics can be transient measurements(More)
Most practical textile models are based on a two scale approach: a one-dimensional fiber model and a fabric model, see [1]. No meso-level is used in between, i.e. the yarn scale is neglected in this setup. For dense textile substrates this seems appropriate as the yarns connect everywhere, but for loose fabrics or scrims this approach cannot be kept.(More)
BACKGROUND Determining the effectiveness of a product in repelling mosquitoes or other flying insects is a difficult task. One approach is to use a bioassay with textile fabric. We investigated the role of the textile substrate in a bioassay with a numerical model, and compared the outcome with known results for DEET. The model was then used to determine(More)
