عنوان مقاله [English]
The 3D simulation of fabrics is one of the interesting topics in textile engineering. The fabric simulation is especially
important in the cloth design software. This design software can be used to visualize the fabric drape on the
body or other surfaces by changing the fabric parameters. Therefore, it saves time and money and increases the
customer satisfaction by preventing the production of garments that will not be sold. In the past three decades,
many methods have been suggested by researchers for fabric modeling. Nowadays, these methods can be roughly
divided into three classes: geometrically-based, physically-based and hybrid methods. Mass spring model, the
physically-based method, is one of the methods for fabric simulation which is widely considered by the researchers.
This method is a fast and flexible technique with computational efficiency. The aim of this paper is to survey
the published results on fabric simulation using mass spring model. The paper reviews the presented mesh types,
forces applied on model, super elastic effect and ways to settle the super elasticity problem, numerical integration
methods for solving equations, collision detection and its response. Some of the fabric simulation examples
presented by the researchers are also presented.
