Limited researches have been proposed regarding the theoretical model of conductive woven fabric. In a previous study, one type of simulation model was derived to compute the resistance of conductive woven fabric. This paper proposed another fast estimated method to obtain the electrical resistance of conductive thermal woven fabrics (CTWFs) based on the previous model but design oriented. This new model has a similar predicted effect, for which the maximum deviation is less than 1.2% compared to the previous one. The cover factor was a major factor in this model, which assists designers to comprehend and manage the method rapidly. The results revealed that the proposed fast estimated model was well fitted (P-value < 0.05) and could well simulate the electrical resistance of CTWFs within a certain error variation. According to this model, designers can independently estimate the electrical resistance and design customized products of CTWFs, which will be produced effectively by reducing extra waste of energy and cost.
