Demonstrates the modelling of the kinetic process when the sewing needle enters the fabric. To get an adequate mechanical model of the given problem, the function ‐ the mathematical model ‐ of the penetration force with respect to the fabric, the needle and the mechanism in the sewing machine must be developed. The fabric was modelled as a combination of warp and weft threads. Each thread from the fabric is modelled as an ideal elastic Hook’s material. Outlines the restrictions which needed to be made to get the mathematical model of the problem.
