In recent years, applications of conductive fabric in textile products are widely developed especially in electronic and smart clothing. Considering the importance of conductive fabric design based on the desired electrical properties, in this study the electromechanical model using finite element method to predict the electrical resistance of the conductive fabric is introduced. The electromechanical model is able to determine the effect of parameters such as fabric contact angle with electrodes, the fabric density, the fabric dimension, metal filament properties and the normal force on the fabric in relation to its electrical resistance. To verify the model performance and to predict the fabric electrical resistance, model predictions were compared with the experimental data. The results from this study are indications of good performance of the proposed electromechanical model parameters listed in the above effective parameters on electrical resistance of the conductive fabric.
