      The goalThe aim of the course is to master the contemporary scientific knowledge of the structural properties and deformation behavior of textile materials.
      The outcomeStudents are qualified to develop practical technical solutions to conventional and special textile structures through engineering approach and the application of scientific knowledge.
      Contents of lecturesThe structure and properties of woven and knitted fabrics are correlated to the quality and performance of finished textile products. Structural properties, geometry and mechanisms of deformation (tensile, compression, bending, shear) of various woven and knitted fabrics having conventional or special structures (3D, textile composites, laminates) are explained. The course also discusses the structural and deformation properties of yarns (as the basic structural element of woven and knitted fabrics) in relation to the performances of textile products.
