Stress-Strain Response of Fabrics under Two-Dimensional Loading. Part 2: Lenticular Yarn Cross-Section

A theoretical analysis of the load-elongation behavior of idealized plain-weave fabrics comprised of yarns having a lenticular cross-section and subjected to biaxial stresses is presented. Fabric strains resulting from both crimp interchange and yarn extension are included. The analytical expressions derived have been solved with a digital computer for both inextensible and linearly elastic materials. Generalized plots of the results are presented for an initial fabric structure with equal crimp distribution in both sets of yarns.
