Title

Kauffman-Type Polynomial Invariants for Doubly Periodic Structures

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Journal of Knot Theory and Its Ramifications
Month/year of publication: August 2007
Pagination: 779-788
Volume: 16 (6)
ISSN: 02182165
DOI: 10.1142/S021821650700549X ?
Interdisciplinary output: Yes
Research group: 1 - Textile Engineering and Materials Research Group
Co-authors: Meshkov, V. R., Omel'chenko, A. V.
Other relevant details: This paper establishes a completely new universal approach towards technology-independent description and classification of textile structures based on knot theory. Textile structures have never been considered in knot theory; likewise, textile scientists have never tried using knot theory for the characterisation of fabrics. A new polynomial invariant for textile structures has been introduced. This paper demonstrates an international excellence in research and will have a major impact on the advancement of fundamental aspects of knot theory and theory of textile material structures. The proposed method will be used in CAD systems for the engineering design of textiles for technical applications.

Title

A Systematic Approach Towards the Design of a Multi-Layered Woven Fabric: Modelling the Structure of a Multi-Layered Woven Fabric

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Journal of the Textile Institute
Month/year of publication: January 2006
Pagination: 57-69
Volume: 97 (1)
ISSN: 00405000
DOI: 10.1533/joti.2005.0213 ?
Research group: 1 - Textile Engineering and Materials Research Group
Co-authors: Koltycheva, N. G.
Other relevant details: This paper introduced an innovative method of description of the structure of multi-layered woven fabrics (MLWF). The method enables a complicated design procedure for the MLWF to be reduced to the much simpler design process of a single-layer woven fabric using conventional CAD systems. The method can be applied to all types of common MLWF including orthogonal and angle-interlock woven structures. This method will be widely used in the textile industry for the design of multi-layered woven fabrics and by the software companies which provide CAD/CAM systems for the industry.

Title

Modelling the Load-Extension Behaviour of Plain-Knitted Fabric. Part II: Energy Relationships in the Unit Cell

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Journal of the Textile Institute
Month/year of publication: October 2002
Pagination: 239-250
Volume: 93 (1)
ISSN: 00405000
DOI: Not supplied ?
Research group: 1 - Textile Engineering and Materials Research Group
Co-authors: Harwood, R. J., Loginov, A. U.
Other relevant details: This paper introduces a new approach to modelling the mechanical behaviour of knitted structures based on the finite-element method analysis of the fabric structure presented as a 2D mesh of unit cells. Usually fabric is considered as a continuous media and then the results are adjusted using correction factors obtained from the experiments. The proposed approach enables for the first time the fabric mechanics to be predicted from the description of the fabric structure and basic mechanical properties of the constituting threads. The results of this investigation will have a significant impact on the advances of structural mechanics of textiles.

Title

Modelling the Load-Extension Behaviour of Plain-Knitted Fabric. Part III: Model Implementation and Experimental Verification

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Journal of the Textile Institute
Month/year of publication: October 2002
Pagination: 251-275
Volume: 93 (1)
ISSN: 00405000
DOI: Not supplied ?
Research group: 1 - Textile Engineering and Materials Research Group
Co-authors: Harwood, R. J., Loginov, A. U.
Other relevant details: This paper considers a new computer model of the mechanical behaviour of plain-knitted structures in uniaxial extension. The knitted structure is considered as a system of unit cells. The model of the mechanical behaviour of the unit cell takes into account the fabric structure, the mechanical behaviour of individual threads, and interaction between the unit cells. The computational results are in a very good agreement with the experimental data. This model can be extended to different knitted structures and to the prediction of 3D deformation. This paper advances theoretical and practical studies of textile mechanics in application to technical textiles.
