NUMERICAL APPROACH TO INTER-FIBER FLOW IN NONWOVENS WITH SUPER ABSORBENT FIBERS

ABSTRACT
This paper establishes a 3-D numerical model for inter-fiber flows in non-woven materials composed of super absorbent fibers. The velocity distribution of the in-ter-fiber flow is obtained. The effects of absorbent fibers and geometrical struc-ture of non-woven fabrics on flow properties are analyzed.
