Subject content Development of capabilities to construct the most complex types of fabric based on minimal given parameters. Acquisition of knowledge how to determine necessary elements in the process of fabric making by analysing the construction parameters of fabric. Independent fabric production according the given parameters and utility values based on the acquired knowledge of the method of applying the CAD-CAM system.
Aim of course Fabric const. with special effectc woven in basic weaves and derived weaves. Analysis of warp and weft par. and their influence on fabric appearance and construction. Warp pattern forming influenced by warp prepar. and weft pattern forming conditional upon the mech. of the looms. Analysis and constr. of Jacquard fabrics for different applications. Analysis of const. para. of fabrics in the function of the loom. Fabric constr. with several warp and weft thread systems, monitoring the process of fabric making. CAD-CAM system in weaving.
