The objective of this study is to develop a fabric drape mathematical model in order to simulate the dynamic behavior of a textile structure. Simulation of fabric drape is a significant issue in textile research, which contributes to advances within the framework of virtual models and clothing simulation. In the first part of this paper, the existing methods dealing with the fabric simulation are presented. In the following part, a mathematical model that has been selected for simulation is given. The third part is devoted to the identification of unknown parameters. Each parameter corresponds to a predefined test. In order to obtain reliable results, very specific samples were realized, testing the fabric weave method and the influence of the yarn nature. This choice is guided by industrial needs. Moreover, the proposed method enables a sensitivity analysis of the model parameters. Finally, in the fourth part, several simulation results are presented and they are compared with practical results by analyzing textile structural deformation according to parameter variation.
