  • Patent number: 11328103
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for inverse simulation of a plurality of fibers. The method comprises: providing a computational model for describing mechanical behavior of fibers; obtaining target geometry information describing a target configuration or dynamical behavior of the plurality of fibers; and inverse simulating the behavior of the plurality of fibers, using the computational model and the target geometry information, to calculate a target set of fiber mechanical parameters for the plurality of fibers. Fibers with the calculated target set of fiber mechanical parameters exhibit the target configuration or dynamical behavior. In some embodiments, the inverse simulation comprises using analysis-by-synthesis to help derive the target set of fiber mechanical parameters. In some embodiments, the inverse simulation uses a neural network to infer information about fiber mechanical parameters from the target geometry information. The invention also provides a method of training the neural network.

  • Patent number: 11318052
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods for assembling elastomeric laminates, wherein elastic material may be stretched and joined with either or both first and second substrates. A first beam is rotated to unwind a first plurality of elastic strands from the first beam in the machine direction. The first plurality of elastic strands are positioned between the first substrate and the second substrate to form the elastomeric laminate. Before the first plurality of elastic strands are completely unwound from the first beam, a second beam is rotated to unwind the second plurality of elastic strands from the second beam. Subsequently, the advancement of the first plurality of elastic strands from the first beam is discontinued. Thus, the elastomeric laminate assembly process may continue uninterrupted while switching from an initially utilized elastic material drawn from the first beam to a subsequently utilized elastic material drawn from the second beam.
