In this article a practical mass-spring system was developed to simulate the draping of woven and knitted fabrics. The material properties important to fabric drape, including aerial density, tensile, shear, and bending properties were measured using the Kawabata Evaluation System and the experimental data were incorporated into the mass-spring model to(More)
The integration of the antenna and textile materials is very important in the army protective or data transmission clothing. In this study, a novel microstrip antenna integrated into a 3D orthogonal woven fabric was successfully designed and fabricated. This type of antenna is designed to work in wearable or conformal antenna applications. Simulation work(More)
The 3D orthogonal woven basalt fiber reinforced polyimide (PI) composites were fabricated and characterized in this study. The PI film was firstly prepared to determine PI processing parameters. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) analysis showed that 300˚C was the suitable imidization temperature. Thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning(More)
Body-centric system which is generally used for monitoring and tracking is a technology involving RFID communication system. Currently, many researchers have investigated textile RFID tags integrated in the garments, however, few of them studies the wearable reader antenna. In this paper, a 1.8GHz textile dual-polarized antenna, which will be potentially(More)
