Abstract: In apparel production, many compressive garments such as girdles and corsets are generally made from more than one layer of elastic fabric, the layers sewn together to improve the functionality of the garments. To increase the versatility of the design and production of pressure garments used for burn rehabilitation, it is necessary to develop a model for predicting the skin and garment interfacial pressure exerted on a fabric tube with multilayers and with the varying tensile properties of the various elastic fabrics. In this study, we attempt to formulate a theoretical model of predicting skin and garment interfacial pressure for a multilayer fabric tube with the varying tensile properties of its elastic fabrics. Our experimental results support our theoretical calculation.
