Weft knitted fabric structures have got new application in the modern technical textile such as seat belt and packaging fabrics. The weft knitted fabric is applied for technical textiles commonly as composites to resist against tension along courses direction in jamming status. In this study, mechanical properties of weft knitted fabrics with different structures of single jersey and double jersey in fully stretched status of jamming were considered by geometrical modeling. Ultra high tenacity nylon 6.6 yarn was used in manufacturing of weft knitted fabrics. Consequently the tenacity of the sample fabrics is assessed by a tensile tester. Mechanical properties of the fabrics are compared with theoretical modeling. The results show that the weft knitted fabrics with Rib structure have a superior tenacity. Also, double jersey fabrics of Full Cardigan and Full Milano represent better mechanical properties in comparison with single jersey fabrics.
