Design, production, modelling and analysis of linear textile structures and products

 August 28th - 31st 2023

The Faculty of Textile Engineering of Technical University of Liberec was established in the year 1960. The technologies and their innovation, new concepts of modelling of fibrous assemblies and new methods for textile structure evaluation is essential part of its research activities.


The Summer School offers a small tasting of textile design, production, modelling and analysis. The main topic concentrates to linear textile structures which are a part of 2D and 3D hierarchical textile. Understanding the laws, limitations and context among the linear textile structures and their other properties allow modelling and innovation of linear products and better understanding of flat or three-dimensional fabrics produced eg. by weaving or knitting for various kinds of application.


Main aim of this Summer School is to introduce the textile structure and thanks to methods learning by doing allow the participants get to know them.

  • Getting acquainted with basic principles of spinning including the terms used for linear textile description.

  • Understanding how the staple yarn for standard use is created.

  • Getting an idea about design and production of linear textile for specific application.

  • Modeling of selected textile parameters based on known theories for fibers, staple yarns and woven structure.

    Experience with application of the theoretical background for practical examples in textile area.

  • Basic knowledge of the environment and functions of image analysis and their possible use for qualification and quantification of textiles.

  • Practical experience with evaluation of selected qualitative characteristics via Image Analysis.
