Abstract:

The paper presents the special compressibility of warp knitted spacer fabric based on its construction, and analyses the stress and strain behavior of spacer fabric when compressed. Corresponding influential factors are also discussed here. In order to explore the performance of spacer fabric as a cushioning material for distributing surface pressure and relieving pressure . Further investigation is focused on the bending behaviour of the pile monofilaments within and beyond the direct compressing area. A primary mechanical model is introduced to describe the compressive deformation of the spacer fabric.

Tags: spacer fabric, compression, spacing monofilament, mechanical model.
