Research on evaluation method of fabric tactile sensibilityAuthor(s): Cai-Yuan Kuang, Guo-Lian Liu
Tactile sensibility arising from the contact between fabrics and skin is the main factor affecting comfort of dressing. In this paper, the experimental paradigm of cognitive behaviors to study tactile sensibility cognition of the selected fabrics is introduced. The experimental program is written with E-Prime 2.0, while the expression of the experimental stimulus material is achieved with the self-made measurement device, which output the senses of urtication, roughness and smoothness. The results show that the evaluation values of those senses differs large, and can distinguish the intensity of tactile sensibility of four kinds of fabrics significantly. It is clear that there is no obvious difference among the evaluation values of tactile sensibility obtained with manual measurement and device for the expression of experimental stimulation materials, indicating a fact that it is scientific and effective to study the evaluation of fabric tactile sensibility with the self-made measurement device combined with the introduction of behavioral experimental paradigm.
