A three dimensional (3D) numerical modelling of filament assemblies has been developed in this study. The twist behaviour of the multifilament is simulated using the ABAQUS finite element package by modelling the yarns as 3D continuum elements. The migration of the filaments has been shown in a previous paper. In this study, we will describe a quantitative analysis of filament migration for different levels of twisting tension and torsion. The distribution of the filament orientation angle in accordance to the radial position and the axial position of the yarn are evaluated.
