A Cloth Simulation Method for Cloth/ Machinery Coupled System Unified Modeling
In some textile machines, fabric is an inseparable element for motion and force transmitting. But the existing mechanical simulation software cannot model the fabric. This paper proposes a new cloth simulation method by blurring machinery (rigid) and cloth (soft) boundaries. This approach simulates the soft with tiny rigid bodies, large deformation with small ones. It aims to integrate the cloth modeling to the mechanical simulation system. Finally, we establish a cloth simulation model on the mechanical modeling and simulation platform, which is an embodiment of our integrated concept.
