A numerical method for special Cosserat rods based on Antman’s description  is developed for hyperelastic materials and potential forces. This method preserves the relevant properties of the underlying PDE system, namely the orthonormality of the directors and the conservation of the energy.
In this work we establish a hierarchy of mathematical models for the numerical simulation of the production process of technical textiles. The models range from highly complex three-dimensional fluid-solid interactions to one-dimensional fiber dynamics with stochastic aerodynamic drag and further to efficiently handable stochastic surrogate models for fiber lay-down. They are theoretically and numerically analyzed and coupled via asymptotic analysis, similarity estimates and parameter identification. Themodel hierarchy is applicable to a wide range of industrially relevant production processes and enables the optimization, control and design of technical textiles.
