Van Wyk's equations are used to approximate static low-load compression curves (maximum 10 gf/cm2) of both woven and knitted materials generally used in garment automation. The simple two-parameter approach, which excludes the volume in unloaded conditions, is first used as an estimate and gives the starting values for the more refined three-parameter model, which eventually gives an almost perfect fit with the experimental results.
