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.
