Biomechanical Engineering of Textiles and Clothing (Woodhead Publishing Series in Textiles)by Yi Li
Synopses & Reviews
Biomechanical engineering enables wearers to achieve the highest level of comfort, fit and interaction from their clothing as it has been designed with the mechanics of the body in mind.
The editors and contributors address issues of designing and producing textiles and clothing for optimum interaction and contact with the body. They cover the fundamental theories, principles and models behind design and engineering for the human body's biomechanics, contact problems arising between textiles/clothing and the body and the mechanics of fibers, yarns, textiles and clothing. The book also includes coverage of the Clothing Biomechanical Engineering System developed at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and its associated models and databases. The conclusion offers practical examples of clothing applications to illustrate how to carry out biomechanical engineering design for specific applications.
