SIM received a new project idea “High-fidelity simulation-based platform to improve textile materials, textile manufacturing and textile connections”.
The goal of this project is to create a platform for users which enables the design and optimization of textile products and processes through mechanical simulations using a virtual fibre simulation framework. The industrial partners have a joint interest to extend the current simulation efforts, coupling it both to textile manufacturing as well as as-manufactured technical textile products. This entails static and dynamic material behaviour as well as manufacturing faults and material failure. For this high-fidelity simulations are developed from yarn to fabric, and allow to go from process to performance. The simulation methodology is implemented in (commercial) finite element software allowing to make full use of current state-of-the-art FE software as well as integrate the textile models into most virtual engineering workflows already present (e.g. machine component modelling). Through virtual prototyping and insights gained from simulations, better textile materials, manufacturing processes and textile connections can be designed, allowing a more quantitative and science-based engineering approach.
