Abstract

This paper's main goal is to study the application of a finite element technique (FEM) to textile issues, specifically the heat transfer behavior of simple knitted cotton materials. A heat transfer measurement device is originally set up for the experimental investigation for this reason. A simple weft knitted fabric model is then created using SOLID WORKS, and it is then loaded into ANSYS Workbench for analysis. The FEM model created for the heat transfer measurement containing simple knitted cotton fabric offers extremely promising results, according to a comparison of the experimental measurements with the numerical solutions. Additionally, it has the potential to obtain textiles made of novel fibers like bamboo, soybean, chitosan, etc. that some of which have good heat conduction coefficients.
