This paper describes the relation between the flow resistance of a textile material and its geometry. A literature survey reveals that the orifice model is most suited to modeling the flow resistance of woven fabrics, but applications of this model were, until now, restricted to relatively open fabrics due to the geometric models used. Therefore, a new geometric model is developed, and experiments show that this model gives good results.
