Abstract: Apparel CAD systems are required to generate virtual wear simulation before a garment is actually made to visualize the wear effects. The natural shapes of garments are determined by three main factors: mechanical properties of fabric materials, geometrical and topological shapes of 2D cloth patterns and the shape of a human body. In this paper, we focus on simulation of cloth mechanical behavior and its interaction with human body during contact. By taking a flared skirt as an example, we visualize the draping, fitting and pressure distribution in apparel design. The simulation starts with 2D patterns that are arranged around a body. Undergoing sewing, the patterns are brought together along seam lines and then form a draped shape. During the sewing and draping, the motion of cloth patterns is governed by a number of mechanical equations. The comparison of the simulated skirts and the actual ones confirms the simulation accuracy. Moreover, the visualized distributions of various stresses reveal the effect of fabric anisotropy. The visualized pressure on human body show distributions that are related to contact between body and garment and can be useful for apparel mechanical functional design.
