Abstract
```````With the aid of the micro-mechanical model far woven fabric proposed in Part 1, we analyse the buckling of a fabric sheet when it is subjected to uniaxial tension. To simplify analysis we focus our attention on the cas e when the inclination angle between the direction of uniaxial tension and that of warp is either zero or 45 degrees. We first show that under the tra ditional orthotropic continuum model out-of-plane buckling of fabric is not possible whether the inclination angle is zero or 45 degrees. Using our ne w model, we show that out-of-plane buckling is not possible when the inclin ation angle is zero but is possible when the inclination angle is 45 degree s. Both results agree with our experimental results. (C) 2000 Elsevier Scie nce Ltd. All rights reserved.
