Abstract: Extremely fine steel fibres (12 mm diameter) are spun into yarns and then knitted into
fabric, which is used, among other applications, as a mould cover in the formation of
automotive glass. High requirements of the glass quality (absence of dioptric distortions)
ask for a perfect evenness of the mould cover surface, which depends on the local
distortions of the fabric created during tensioning of the fabric over the mould. In this
paper, compression behaviour of steel knitted fabrics combined with the fabric deformation
in biaxial tension and shear is studied. Interaction of the fabric with the formed
glass depends on the local changes of the fabric compression behaviour due to local
fabric deformations on the mould. The deformation of the fabric is further linked to
quality of the glass using quantitative optical distortion system based on moire´ patterns
to measure glass dioptric distortions.
