From Biological Macromolecules to Drape of Clothing: 50 Years of Computing for Textiles

Abstract

The development of computing of structural mechanics of fibres and textiles is linked to the advances in computer hardware and software. The examples cover wool and other fibres, continuous filament and other yarns, micromechanics of woven and other fabrics, and drape of fabrics. The tasks for the 21 century is to develop easy-to-use programs, which will generate a creative interchange between academis and industry, and to use the increased computing power to formulate individual fibre models.
