This chapter discusses and reviews the fundamental science and technology behind fabric structure and mechanics. The chapter introduces the extent of knowledge regarding fabric deformations, such as tensile, bending and shearing, and a new kind of testing method based on image analysis to characterize fabric mechanical behavior. A general review of computer simulation techniques for woven fabrics and garments is also presented.
