Conference

The Joint International Conference Clothing-Body Interaction 2021 is organized by the teams of Prof. Dr. Lukas Capek, Department of the Technologies and Structures, Technical University Liberec, Czech Republic and Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Yordan Kyosev, Chair of Assembly Technology for Textile Products, ITM, TU Dresden, Germany.
The conference is planned during the new COVID conditions as pure online event. It aims to provide a platform for the exchange between the researchers and industrials in the area of the complex interactions between the human body and clothing. The engineering development of textile products requires application of interdisciplinary approaches in order to satisfy the high requirements in several areas. The deep analysis of a “standard topic” like the comfort of daily clothing requires knowledge and consideration of heat and moisture transfer, body metabolism, air gap between body and clothing, body deformations during the motion, moisture absorbtion of the textile layers. For functional clothing additional interactions of acting mechanical, chemical or other forces are coming. The conference provides unique platform for exchange between the leading experts, researchers and companies in the areas of these interactions.

Topics

Welcome are research papers and industrial presentations in the areas of:

  • Biomechanics, rigging, kinematic models
  • 3D & 4D body scanning and analysis
  • Mechanical clothing-body interaction, FEM models and simulations, softbody techniques
  • Thermal and moisture clothing-body interaction
  • Personal protection equipment
  • Forensic biomechanics, damages in clothing and body
  • Other related to the interaction between the clothing and human body topics

The event is supported by the Czech Society of Biomechanics and the publications by the Saxonia State and University Library (SLUB).
