Characteristic Times and Inverse Problems for Diffusion in Coated Textiles

Abstract

We study diffusion of active ingredients in coated textiles by a three-scale model. These scales consist of a fiber level representing the fiber with its polymer coating containing an active ingredient, a yarn level, and the level of the room holding the textile. An analysis of the model is carried out using the characteristic times of the different levels. We investigate the influence of the parameters in the model by solving several inverse problems.
