The primary aim is to understand the way fabrics and garments interact with mechanical devices designed to hold them and move them around and how their behaviours are affected by environmental changes. Studies are being undertaken on an analysis of the behaviour of fabric during the pinch gripping operation and on how fabric panels move on vibratory surfaces. To complement this, the relevant properties of fabrics are being studied, particularly buckling, bending and friction under zero and low applied normal forces. Friction and bending tests are also being undertaken over a wide range of environmental conditions to see the effects of humidity changes on handling processes.
