|Item||Characteristic value||Description||Reading the data|
|B||Bending rigidity||Higher values mean more rigid bending|
|Higher values mean poor recoverability|
B correlates to the flexibility and rigidity felt when bending the object by hand.
The larger the B value becomes, the more rigid the sensation becomes, and the smaller the value becomes, the more flexible the sensation becomes.
2HB correlates to the recoverability (elasticity) felt as the object returns to its original position after being bent. The larger the 2HB value becomes, the poorer the recoverability becomes, and the smaller the value becomes, the better the recoverability becomes.
Connecting this device to the instrument and to a PC allows the waveforms and numerical values of measurement data to be output.
Obtained data can be saved as BIN data or CSV data.
The Kawabata Evaluation System, centered on Sueo Kawabata, a professor at Kyoto University, and Masako Niwa, a professor at Nara Women’s University, is an objective evaluation method for measuring the texture of clothing fabrics based on the “The Standardization and Analysis of Hand Evaluation” provided by the Hand Evaluation and Standardization Committee of the Textile Machinery Society of Japan.
