This paper introduces a very simple way to evaluate low stress shearing properties of woven fabrics with the advantages of simplicity and easy accessibility. A 200-gram load is applied on small portion of the sample instead of applying the load overall width of the fabric. As a result, buckling of the fabric will happen and the loading-unloading curve will show the behavior of the fabric during the deformations. Initial slope after buckling and the gap area between loading-unloading curves above the buckling point are the elements, which could show the shearing behavior of the woven fabrics.
