dc.description.abstractThis thesis presents a model of fabric bending hysteresis. The hysteresis model is designed to reproduce the fabric bending measurements taken by the Kawabata Evaluation System (KES) and the model parameters can be derived directly from these property measurements. The advantage to using this technique is that it provides the ability to simulate a continuum of property curves. Results of the model and its components are compared and constrasted with experimental results for fabrics composed of different weaves and yarn types. An attempt to incorporate the bending model as part of a fabric drape simulation is also made.en
