Abstract:

The theoretical mechanical behavior of a plain knitted fabric subjected to biaxial stresses is derived. An approximate mathematical model of the fabric structure was established from which the stress vs fabric-geometry and stress vs strain relationships were determined. The work was done by considering only the properties of the fabric structure, completely independent of the fiber properties. The results may be used for such applications as predicting the performance of a plain knitted fabric in situations where it will be stressed biaxially. Author
