Yarn Engineering Based on the Simulation of Knitted Fabrics - Possibilities and Limits for Ring-Yarns and OE-Rotor-Yarns

M. Gerig and B. Wulfhorst


Differences in yarn structure influence the properties and the characteristics of fabrics produced from these yarns. Therefore the securing and controlling of quality in spinning mills aims at providing the basis for a yarn production process that takes the final article into consideration. A fundamental support for the engineering from fiber to fabric is the possibility to simulate knitted and woven fabrics, taking the yarn characteristics as a starting point.
