              Auxetic materials have many enhanced properties compared to conventional materials - including a higher shear modulus, a double curved property, high indentation resistance, and more. Due to their negative Poisson's ration, when stretched they become thicker perpendicular to the ...applied force. This book provides a detailed introduction to the basic properties of auxetic materials and how they differ from conventional materials, particularly with reference to auxetic textile materials such as polymers, fibers, yarns, fabrics, and textile composites. It discusses the various beneficial properties of auxetic structures in textiles and how to translate this into actual materials development. Information includes the deformation mechanism of textile structures to achieve auxetic behavior, as well as modelling and simulation of auxetic textile structures. Finally, the book provides an expert insight into potential applications areas for auxetic textile materials, potential application areas for exploration. Cutting across textiles disciplines from technical textiles and advanced composites to fashion and design, the book is a valuable introduction to the field for newcomers, and a potent insight into the potential of these materials for those working in applications development for a range of sectors.
