Prediction of Fabric Bagging Occurred by an Artificial Arm Under Dynamic Conditions
In recent research, the bagging behaviour of fabrics occurred during the cyclic motions of an arm were investigated experimentally by using a set of woven fabrics. The new testing instrument similar to an arm and having an elbow joint was used and test fabrics were deformed under dynamic conditions. 22 suiting fabrics were used as test fabrics composed of 100% cotton and cotton blend, 100% wool and wool blend, 100% linen and 100% polyester fiber as raw material. Besides fabric bagging tests, fabric structural properties, tensile and bending properties were determined in the context of the study. All objective data were used to predict fabric bagging parameters. Regression analyses were performed by multiple linear regression models to predict residual bagging height.
