Most of numerical simulation methods regarding cloth draping are based on mechanical models. Graphically, the
representation of this model is likely to be a uniform grid. Fabrics being a very
exible material, a number of wrinkles
appear on its surface when submitted to free or constrained motion (collision/applied load, supports). The problem
regarding the simulation run is to represent realistically the mechanical system surface and its associated motion
which are strongly related to mesh discretization. We propose a new method based on adaptive meshing allowing
the mechanical system to behave without any constraint related to a uniform mesh. Numerical examples are given
to shaow the efficiency of the method.
