Abstract(s)This paper describes a new approach to improve on modelling the bending behaviour of plain-woven fabric. The four-node flat shell element is developed by incorporating a strain smoothing technique, six degrees of freedom at each node. The material laws for in-plane and out-of-plane behaviors are expressed in terms of orthotropic elastic material. The physical and mechanical parameters of fabric samples are measured using Kawabata Evaluating System for Fabric (KES-F). An improved numerical model with a strain smoothing operation for modelling the bending behaviour of plain-woven fabric is then carried out. The bending behavior of a rectangular plain-woven fabric sheet with clamped edges is simulated.
