Fabrics modeling

Abstract:
This work was performed in collaboration with Nadjombé Faré and Alain Brillard. Fabrics have a long history in Mulhouse and there is an engineering school on that topic. From the mathematical point of view, the modeling of fabrics amounts to a nonlinear elasticity problem in large displacements for which we proved an existence theorem and devised a numerical software to compute fabrics draping, which is defined as the folds produce by a fabrics hanging on an obstacle. Below is an animation of a fabric hanging on a table corner.
