Title On the Shear Stiffness of Resin - Coated Fabrics
Summary The membrane material of textile fabrics coated with resin ,in general, has two kind of tension stiffness in the orthogonal thread directions, and the shear stiffness which is lower than tension stiffness. Its stress-strain relationships have the unique nonlinear characteristics. In this study, a new test method of a shear stiffness in consideration of the stress-strain relationship peculiar to this resin-coated fabrics is established. In conclusion, this report explains the characteristics of the shear stiffness of the material pursued by this test method and possibility to adapt it to the numerical analysis.
