The aim of the book is to provide engineers with a practical guide to Finite Element Modelling (FEM) in Abaqus CAE software. The guide is in the form of step-by-step procedures concerning yarns, woven fabric and knitted fabrics modelling, as well as their contact with skin so that the simulation of haptic perception between textiles and skin can be provided. The specific modelling procedure will be proceeded by a theoretical background concerning mechanical characteristics of the modelled elements or phenomena. Models will be validated and discussed. In addition, virtual object tests results will be presented and compared to the outcome of the modelling process.

Introduction. Aim of the book. Textiles – why to model them? Finite element analysis and finite element models – overview. Abaqus software as a tool for modelling textiles. Modelling of fiber. Theoretical approach. Mechanical characteristic of the fiber – case study. Finite Element Model of fiber – beam element. Verification of model of fiber. Modelling of yarns. Theoretical approach. Mechanical characteristic of the yarn – case study. Finite Element Models of yarn. Verification of models of yarns. Modelling of fabrics. Theoretical approach – knitted fabrics. Theoretical approach – woven fabrics. Hybrid materials and composites – review and selected examples. Other types of fabrics – simulations and animations. Haptic perception of objects. Structure and physical properties of human skin. Subjective hand evaluation – feeling textiles against the skin - hand panels. Objective hand evaluation. Finite Element Models of human skin and textiles. Summary. References. Glossary. Appendix. Index.

Prof. Izabela Luiza Ciesielska-Wrobel is a post-doctoral senior researcher at Ghent University, Department of Materials, Textiles and Chemical Engineering, and was a visiting scholar at North Carolina State University, College of Textiles, Textile Performance and Comfort Center (known as TPACC). She obtained her master's degree in Textile Engineering at Lodz University of Technology in Poland, where, after completing her PhD studies and PhD defense in 2007, she continued her studies on comfort in textiles, including protective textiles as well as haptic perception of textiles as an assistant professor and adjunct. She has published more than 50 articles, including refereed papers and conference materials. She is a co-author of two patents. She is a beneficiary of two prestigious and competitive European grants, namely the Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship for Career Development (2010 – 2012) and the Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship (2014 – 2017). Currently, she lives in North Carolina, USA.
