A virtual instrument (VI) based test method and measurement system was proposed and developed to evaluate the handle properties of textile materials such as fabrics in one step by measuring the fundamental mechanical and thermal sensory signals and simulating the psychological judgment processes during human hand evaluation process. The test method and the definition of evaluation indices for handle properties were introduced. Twelve types of fabrics with different structural features and made from different materials and/or using different finishing techniques were tested. The analysis of the variance and capacity study were performed to identify the significance of differences among the test samples and determine the capability of the measurement system.
