Simulate the Dynamic Draping Behavior of Woven and Knitted Fabrics

Abstract

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 simulate the dynamic draping behavior of a few selected woven and knitted fabrics. The draping of a garment made of the corresponding five types of fabrics was simulated as well. It was found in dynamic draping simulation that the selected knitted fabrics experience more deformation with smoother appearance than the woven fabrics due to their lower bending and shear moduli.
