Modelling the Shear-Tension Coupling of Woven Engineering Fabrics
The BBE FE model. Force boundary conditions are applied to the right and left centrally located node sets, and vertical displacement boundary conditions are applied to the upper and lower centrally located node sets. The colour legend indicates the shear angle. The three different deformations occurring in Regions A, B and, C of the test specimen are clearly visible. The shear angle in Region A is taken from the highlighted element.
