The aims of this study were to identify the optimal combination of knitted fabric properties that influence the sensation of coolness and to ascertain the relationship between subjective and objective coolness measurements. Test fabrics included eight cool-touch nylon knitted fabrics and four other knitted fabrics. The physical properties and surface characteristics of the fabrics were assessed. Coolness sensation was determined by the Thermolabo II instrument to provide an objective… Expand

Design Method of Fabric Density Sensor Based on the Virtual Grating With Gradual Constant
TLDR
In the detection process, a digital grating image generated by computer is used to replace the physical grating, which not only makes the detection faster, but also make the system applicable for the fabric density detection of all kinds of specifications. Expand
