Existing fabric bending rigidity models are theoretically evaluated. They include Peirce's model, Shinohara et al's model, Cooper's model and Go et al's model. It is found that Cooper's theoretical model is the most reliable and can be applied to predict the anisotropy of fabric bending rigidity, largely because it takes account of twist and frictional effects.
