THEORETICAL ANALYSIS OF MOISTURE TRANSMISSION THROUGH THE FABRIC SYSTEM
Zhang Weiyuan (Department of Apparel Technology)
The purpose of this paper is th elucidate the moisture transfering through the fabric system using the geometric structure. Based upon a consideration of the possible paths of moisture transmission, the diffusion throughout the fabric was visualized as passing through the pores of the yarns, the component parts of fiber substance and interfiber air space as well as free space of fabric surface. The agreement between the computed and experimental resistance to moisture transmission was quite consistent.
