Woven Fabric Structures



AuthorQinliang ZHUANG (庄勤亮)


This book begins with the basic concepts of fabric structures, and introduces the classification of various fabrics, the approaches for presentation of fabric structure, as well as loom programmes for fabric weaves. It covers the principle of woven fabric formation on the loom, fundamental weaves and their derivatives, combined weaves, and compound or complex weaves. At the same time, the requirements and methods of woven fabric analysis are included. The unique part in this book is that it uses not only the conventional weave diagrams, the structural illustrations but also fabric simulations so that the details of fabric structures can be well shown. It also has excellent features in theory, knowledge, practicability and readability.

This book can be used as a textbook for university students majoring in textiles. It also can be a reference book for textile engineers and designers of woven fabrics.
