Part I of this series presented a new model for predicting the flow resistance of monofilament fabrics. In this part, the model is applied to the flow resistance of multi filament fabrics. Experiments show that flow resistance in multifilament fabrics can be modeled in general, but it appears that the method is not suitable for modeling flow resistance in fabrics that are deformed by the flowing fluid. The experiments also show that the assumption that all pores of a fabric are equally sized must be valid.
