Prediction of pressure due to elastic fabric tube following energy principle

  title={Prediction of pressure due to elastic fabric tube following energy principle},
  author={R. Chattopadhyay and Moumita Bera},
Elastic knitted fabric tubes are used as pressure garments and pressure bandages in compression therapy to mitigate many physical ailments of human beings. Laplace law has been extensively used for prediction of pressure at the interface of human body and elastic tube by many. However, it has been stated to be inadequate in some cases. Human body is compressible because of presence of soft tissues. This characteristic has not been taken into account. In the present paper a mathematical model… Expand

Predictive modelling of compression garments for elastic fabric and the effects of pressure sensor thickness
Abstract This research has been conducted to develop mathematical models to predict the compression pressure and strain value of fabric based on Laplace’s law. The experiment was designed inExpand
Predicting Compression Pressure of Knitted Fabric Using a Modified Laplace’s Law
A good correlation was observed between the experimental and calculated pressure values for all combinations of fabrics, mounted with variable tension on the cylinder, and over the considered range of pressures the difference between the two datasets was generally less than 0.5 mmHg. Expand
Compression of limbs by tight bandages
Human body parts are sometimes compressed by tight clothes, footwear, bandages etc. Therefore, it is important to balance between functionality and comfort of garments in order to avoid negativeExpand

Model to Predict Interfacial Pressures in Multilayer Elastic Fabric Tubes
In apparel production, many compressive garments such as girdles and corsets are generally made from more than one layer of elastic fabric, the layers sewn together to improve the functionality ofExpand
Factors influencing the effectiveness of compression garments used in sports
This research seeks to investigate the effects of physical attributes of suitable knitted fabrics on the amount of pressure generated on the underlying body. We aim to predict the magnitude ofExpand

To study how much pressure develops under a pressure garment, and how to obtain adequate effective pressure for scar treatment, we have used garments in combination with sponge and plastic plates inExpand
Direct measurement of cutaneous pressures generated by pressure garments.
A simple method of directly measuring the cutaneous pressures generated by a pressure garment is demonstrated, believed to be more representative of the pressures generated than the interpositional techniques that measure garment-skin interface pressure. Expand
