The thermal properties of fabric have significant impact on thermal comfort of the wearers. This research work covers the development of geometrical models of plain weft knitted fabric structures and evaluation of the thermal properties by using the fluid surface interaction technique (FSI). The results obtained from the numerical method were compared with the experimental results and it was found that they were highly correlated. Furthermore the validated models were utilized to evaluate the velocity and temperature profile of air at out-plane created over the surface of knitted fabric.
