  • The high porosity of fabrics and fibres have hindered the study of the interaction between fluids and those kind of materials. In order to understand penetration mechanisms of polymeric matrices or woven sealing, some properties such as wettability or capillarity must be analysed. The fluid speed through some woven could be compared with metallic meshes in those is easy to determine pores size. In this work it is tried to solve these problems from a theoretical point of view by using hydrostatic laws and capillarity effect.
