Parker is researching
electro-mechanical properties of commercially available yarns/fabrics.
Investigation and quantification of silver-coated nylon yarns, in
particular their properties when knitted into a fabric. This looks at the
electrical response of fabric when strained in different directions
relative to the normal orientation of the knitted loops forming the
fabric. The work seeks to explain and predict the behavior of the fabrics
by representing the fabric as a network of resistive elements.
