Non-woven modeling manuscript now out in IJSS

Check out Naigeng’s latest paper in the International Journal of Solids and Structures. In this work extending from the final chapter of his PhD dissertation, Naigeng presents a constitutive model for non-wovens that explicitly includes bond failure as a damage mechanism. This novel contribution to the field build’s on Naigeng’s early PhD work experimentally identifying key non-woven deformation mechanisms and his later work developing a method to experimentally quantify bond strength distributions.
