Our software tool TexMath is a modular program for simulating mechanical material properties and optimizing textile products as well as multi-scale problems for textile applications.
- With MeshUp we create periodic textile structures of all kinds (woven fabrics, knitted warp and weft fabrics, spacer textiles) according to the respective machine control with complex weaves/knitting looping diagrams.
- We calculate the effective mechanical properties (bending, tension, shear, compression) via FiberFEM for the textile structures created with MeshUp.
- We simulate complex load scenarios on textiles (e.g. stretching, draping) or even the textile production process such as knitting with FISFT with a translation to the knitting machine control software.
All tools have interfaces to each other and also to GeoDict (optionally to Ansys/Abaqus as IGES-formats) in order to perform further fluid mechanical simulations on the textiles, e.g. to determine their permeability in any elongation state. An interface with FeelMath allows further detailed three-dimensional mechanical simulations at specific yarn or contact points, so that strength and durability can also be investigated.
