The purpose was to organise an international forum for presenting and exchanging the knowledge and results of research, as well as to make possible for all of us (and the rest of the textile world, of course) to get to know the recent research and development trends of the research in the field of textile and garment technologies, fashion design and marketing of textiles and garment products including environment protection, which proved successful.
A minimisation algorithm with application to optimal design of reinforcements in textiles and garments
This paper aims to develop an efficient two-variable minimisation algorithm and to apply it in engineering optimisation of buttonhole reinforcements.
Investigating the development of digital patterns for customized apparel
The paper aims to provide an overview of the area of digital pattern developing for customized apparel.
Investigating the positioning edge accuracy of sensors in textile and clothing manufacture
This paper seeks to pursue the research of different types of sensors suitable for positioning edge accuracy of textile material.
Image analysis method of surface roughness evaluation
The main aim of this paper is description of new apparatus and approach for contact less evaluation of surface roughness. For characterization of surface roughness, the procedures based on classical and non-classical (complexity) parameters are proposed.
Garment abrasion strength evaluation: a comparative methods study
The breaking strength compromises fabric wearing out during wear of garments and is a determining parameter in their useful life. Thus, it is intended to compare the efficacy of each method concerning the understanding of results, which is, the explanation of the phenomenon, namely through statistical models which characterize abrasion strength, measured by each method, as a function of fabric assurance by simple testing (FAST) parameters.
Investigation of the strength of ultrasonically welded sails
Today when the newest high-tech fibers and sophisticated material constructions are used for the production of sails, forming 3D sail shape from 2D sailcloth has still remained very primitive because classic sewing techniques are mostly used. Since, the clothing and technical textile industry has been recently using some of contemporary joining techniques (ultrasonic, thermal, high-frequency) replacing classic sewing, this paper seeks to investigate the possibility of ultrasonic welding in the production of sails, and the strength of obtained bonds.
New measuring device for estimating the pressure under compression garments
This paper aims to describe new measuring device designed for measuring the pressure exerted by textile products used in healing therapy of hypertrophic scars. The testing device called “Textilpress” has been used for verification of the usually used method of designing and manufacturing ready-made compression garment products.
Technical systems in intelligent clothing with active thermal protection
This paper seeks to examine the practical construction of a patented intelligent article of clothing with active thermal protection, outer shell with a variable thickness, system of thermoinsulating chambers, sensors and measuring systems, microcontroller and control system, actuator system and power supply system based on hardware aspect.
Development of a mathematical model for the heat transfer of the system man – clothing – environment
To develop a mathematical model of the heat transfer from human body to environmental air that will be numerically solved by a personal computer.
A smart sensor for compression measurement in automotive textiles
For size reasons, adapted sensors, able to measure intrinsic mechanical properties of fabrics, have not been developed yet. The study aims at developing a sensor that can be inserted within a specific textile, a “complex” fabric used as seat-cover fabrics, and consisting of an assembly of three layers.
