Subject content Tensors and rheology. Continuum concept. Stress vector, stress tensor and finite strain tensor. Plane stress and plain strain. Hyperelasticity and linear elasticity. Linear visoelasticity behaviour. Two-dimensional elasticity. Rheological models ( Maxwell model, Kelvin model. Alfrey model). Creep and relaxation. Three dimensional model. Isotropy and anisotropy. Textiles microstructure. Micro-scale, mezzo-scale and macro-scale. Mechanical characteristics of textile materials, strength, tenacity and heat permeability. Inhomogeneous cross-section of textile material. Using rheological models for fibres, yarns, woven fabrics, knitted fabrics, technical and nonwoven fabrics.
Aim of course Qualifying the students of the doctoral study program to be able to analyze rheological models of textile materials on their own. He/she should be able to analyze 2D and 3D models of textile materials.
