Subject content Homeomorphisms and topological invariants that can be applied in the design of garments and cutting parts (number of components, cut points, point indexes, unicursional curves, Jordan's theorem, Euler's theorem, Euler's characteristics, and bonding operations) will be studied.
3D body analysis will be performed by 3D scanning as an input layer for the study of topological invariants. The results obtained will be used as a basis for designing clothing primarily for people with special needs, and protective clothing tailored to the specific body type, degree of protection and specific requirements based on topological invariants.
The course will analyze and compare the features and results of existing and new computer-based methods based on topological invariants for better tailoring of body shape and better function of the garment or clothing system.
Aim of course The aim of the course is to develop a computerized method of constructing patterns based on digitized human bodies ,using a scientific approach and studying topological invariants.
