Advanced software tools allow simulating the virtual fitting of clothes which is really close to reality. This ability comprises a broad number of advantages for both designers and industry. First and foremost the design process can be truly optimized in various aspects (speed--up of the design due to digital prototyping coupled with instant feedback, a priori information regarding the stress distribution within the garment, fitting for all kinds of body shapes). The virtual description of a garment takes the industry to a new level of flexibility.
The most important input data for the simulation are the mechanical and tribological properties of the garment. The key values can be named as: tensile, shear, bending and friction. Experimental values for the mechanical fabric properties can be derived from standard fabric characterization experiments. These methods have, however, not been designed for use in simulations. The goal of the proposed paper is to develop a universal testing machine to precisely quantify all relevant garment parameters needed for cloth simulation.
