This paper presents a model for the prediction of fabric drape profile using polar coordinates. The drape coefficient (DC%), node locations and numbers in the fabric drape profile can be predicted accurately by using this model. Polar coordinate fitting is applied to determine the constants in drape profile model. Good agreements are obtained between the theoretical and experimental drape profiles of 35 woven fabrics.
