The Drapability Effects Test Method of Lining and Shell Fabric
The fabric drapability is the peformation due to fabric weight to sagging, reflecting the drape degree and drape shape of fabric. This paper design a new method to measure the drapability of mulit-layer fabric by computer image processing technology. It can evaluate the drapability performance and the interaction of fabrics and lining. A test equipment was made. Photos were took in planfprm and side elevation in warp and weft by a digital camera while the sample fabric was overhanging naturally. The datas, like drape coefficient and drape degree, were processed and analysized by AUTO CAD. The paper’s results are that: The drape coefficient and the drape degree of the mulit-layer fabric are between the single-layer fabric’s and single-layer lining’s, and they are closer to the target fabrics.
