|Abstract:|| The aim of this paper is to develop a new image-processing based
method to compute the impermeability of a given textile, and to propose a mathematical description
of the basic knitting procedures together with a mathematical
parametrization of the textile structures.
The method will be then coupled with a numerical strategy to compute
the micro-impermeability of a yarn with the aim of obtaining
a multi-scale algorithm that incorporates the effects of the yarn micro-impermeability into the
model computing the textile macro-impermeability. Several numerical experiments will
assess the validity of our image-processing based approach.
