|Abstract:||A systematic approach to engineer a complex textile structure with the help of modem computational techniques is proposed. It is suggested that textile designers and engineers should start from first principles and then develop powerful new approaches to suit to the special complexities of various textile structure in order to meet the needs of customers and manufacturers. It is also suggested that the textile engineers should accept the cultural change and develop advanced software to create, manipulate and evaluate new fabric structures in order to make the fabric mechanics as a valuable design tool.|
