Analytical method using gamma functions for determining areas of power elliptical shapes for use in geometrical textile models


F. Gommer a1, L.P. Brown2, K.C.A. Wedgwood3

Textile models are often assumed to have homogenous and well defined cross-sections. For these models, the use of a power elliptical cross-sectional shape has been found to be beneficial as different shapes can be created, e.g. lenticular, elliptical or rectangular, with a single function. The cross-sectional area of a power ellipse is usually determined numerically as the analytical determination of the cross-sectional area is not straightforward. This short communication presents an analytical solution for this shape.
