Assessment of Transversal Deformations
of Multi-Axial Woven Fabrics Stretched One-Directionally

Authors: Frontczak-Wasiak Izabela, Snycerski Marek

The coefficient of the transversal deformation of woven fabrics while stretched one-directionally was determined by experiments. Three-axial fabrics, four-axial fabrics with homogeneous and inhomogeneous nets, and six-axial fabrics with an inhomogeneous net were the subjects of...   more »
