Assembly Level—From Textile Structures to Textile Assemblies

  • Yordan KyosevEmail author


The cloths and other ready to use products are normally represented as 2D objects. For thier modelling are used shell or plate elements, which elastic behaviour has to be identified bevore the modelling. The yarn level is seldom modelled until now for the ready structures, but with the increasing computational power this will become possible. This chapter presents a method of the structural cells, as topological units of the yarn level structure. Some direct applications in the area of spacer fabrucs and tubular fabrics are demonstrated. Issues of the modelling of cutting of fabrics are discoussed.
