Two knitting structures are designed and tested. It is observed that the resistance of Stainless Steel (SS) fiber fabric has a linear relationship with strain within a definite range. Any change in fabric structure may cause changes of the linear range and sensitivity of the strain sensor. The main mechanism of the fabric sensitive to strain has been deduced to be the change of contact resistance between yarns during stretching.
