Modeling of light specular reflection from plain-knitted fabrics - Three-dimensional analysis

Research output: Journal article publicationJournal articleAcademic researchpeer-review


The paper applies a mathematical model for specular reflection to plain-knitted fabrics by using a three-dimensional analysis. Computer simulation of goniophotometric curves is generated based on the model. Correction factors are introduced by taking into consideration of geometry of the instrument used. Comparison between the simulated and the measured curves of a straight monofilament yarn with various orientation angles is carried out and reasonable agreement has been obtained.
