Paper Title:
Analysis of Water Transport Properties for Plant Structured Textile Fabric
  Abstract

Moisture/liquid transport in textile fabric is one of the critical factors affecting physiological comfort. Here we investigate the water transport properties of plant structures textile fabric, which was formed by mimicking the tree structure network. Our work shows that the water transport properties of the new type of material depend on its geometric structures, including the branching level and the diameter and length of the 0th branching level, and the structure fractal dimension. The more the length and the branching level, the lower the water transport capacity. A comparison of the plant structured textile fabric with the general fabric indicates that the plant structured fabric can provide higher moisture transport capacity and its maximum water transport capacity approach 1.707 times higher than that of the general fabric.
