Abstract

Understanding the behaviour of fabric in bulk form is necessary for the optimum design of automated material handling systems. Considers the bulk behaviour of stacks of cut fabric parts; the objective is to predict the bulk behaviour of stacks under compression. Uses a single ply fabric compression model developed by De Jong, Snaith and Michie to develop a compression model for stacked fabric.
