Analysis of Clothing Deformation During Motion and its Application for the Design of Functional Clothing



TU Dresden, Institute of Textile Machinery and High Performance Material Technology, Germany


On the one hand, functional clothing often requires materials with low elongation –for instance conductive wires for signals or antennas, stiff tapes for force transmission or multi-layer membranes with special protective functions. On the other hand, wearing comfort depends on the physical freedom of movement, which can be enhanced by larger gaps in clothing or elastic materials. Hence, this work presents a method for the analysis of clothing deformation during motion and the detection of areas with lower deformation, where wires and tapes can be placed. For the analysis, a human leg with a specially designed elastic textile material was scanned with a 3D scanner in different poses, and subsequently, the 3D data was processed in a two-step procedure: areas with an elongation below a set limit can then be marked and selected for the placement of inelastic functional elements.
