Experimental permeability data of non-crimp fabrics (NCFs) is
discussed in this chapter. The chapter starts with a general introduction on
permeability, followed by a discussion on experimental permeability data.
The infl uence of geometrical features of the textile architecture, in particular
the stitching, is discussed in the third section, whereas the relation between
fabric deformation and permeability is addressed in the fourth section. Two
types of deformation can be distinguished: compression and in-plane shear.
Both are addressed in this section. The chapter ends with concluding remarks,
including comments regarding the benchmark project which is recently
initiated and some future developments.
