A numerical algorithm for nonlinear elastic relaxation of a multilayer woven fabric is introduced and tested. The equilibrium solutions are compared with real samples. An excellent result is obtained in spite of two simplifications: Bending stiffness of the fibers and friction between the fibers are both neglected. The numerical simulation is very fast and cost efficient in the search for optimal fabrics. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
