Title: PREDICTION OF THE QUALITY OF A FABRIC
Abstract:
The method is for predicting the quality of a fabric to be made from a given yarn. At least two yarn characteristics (1) of the given yam are determined. A fabric-quality index (3) is calculated for the given yarn from the at least two yarn characteristics (1) and from at least one fabric characteristic (2) of the fabric. The fabric-quality index (3) is a scalar with a value in the range between 1 and 5. Compared to the known fabric-simulation methods, the method is simple and yields a quantitative result in form of the fabric-quality index (3).
