What is drape testing?

Drape testing is performed using a drape testing machine to determine the drape coefficient of a material. Fabric drapability is used to describe the way a fabric hangs under its own weight. It reflects the drape degree and drape shape of the drape meter fabric, which is expressed by the drape coefficient of textile fabrics. In the drape meter test, there are several factors affecting drape of fabric such as weight, stiffness, thickness, rigidity, etc. And the drape of different fabrics is different. The drape coefficient refers to the percentage of the projected area of the sagging part of fabric material and the ratio of its original area, which is used as the traditional fabric drape parameter. Here is two drape coefficient formulas for your reference:

Q: What is fabric drapability?

A: Drapability of a fabric is combined effect of several factors such as stiffness, flexural rigidity, weight, thickness etc. Stiffness, an attribute of fabric hand is one of the most important factors determining draping quality of fabric e.g. soft fabric drapes closer to the body forming ripples whereas stiff fabric drapes away from the body. Stiffness of fabric itself depends upon geometrical parameters of the fabric.

 

Q: What is drape coefficient of textile fabrics?

A: Drape coefficient is the traditional parameter used to express the drapeability of fabrics and defined as the percentage of a paper ring (used to project/cast on the shadow of the draped sample) covered by the vertically projected shadow of the partially centrally supported circular sample on a circular disc with smaller diameter.
