Under the assumption of semi-circular form for a fabric bend, the creasing of fabric strips and compression of fabric loops were analyzed by neglecting the structural complexity of the fabric. The relationship between the creasing force and deformation was deduced by using an energy method and solutions were given for a linearly elastic material with constant internal frictional constraint. The agreements between the theoretical predictions and experimental results was found to be satisfactory.
