Abstract: Previous experimental work on the determination of fabric tensile properties has usually considered the uniaxial-extension deformation. However, in their practical use, fabrics are subjected to biaxial-extension deformation. The purpose of this study is to provide a clear picture of tensile and elongation properties of plain-weave suiting materials. The KES G-2 strip biaxial tester was used in order to eliminate the propensity of “waisting” effect of the fabric specimen under load. When fabric specimen is stretched in the tensile direction, the biaxial clamps prevent the structure from collapsing inward. The clamps are free to move along the track following the elongation in the tensile direction, therefore not inhibiting any elongation in the tensile direction. In this study, a total of 8 plain-weave suiting materials were examined. The results revealed that fabric constraint stress could be significantly predicted.
