The textile industry can experience a vast array of problems, and modeling can highlight the mechanisms involved and analyze useful predictive results for solving these problems. This book provides an overview of how textile modeling can be used within the textile industry. The first group of chapters reviews the different types of models and methods of how models can predict textile structures and behavior. The second group of chapters presents a selection of case studies, expressing the strengths, limitations, and how various models are applied in specific applications. Chapters include the modeling of color and drape in textiles.
