Abstract It is important to measure the aerodynamic properties (drag and lift) contributed by fabric in order to design aerodynamically efficient sports garments for higher speed sports. The primary objective of this study is to investigate the aerodynamic properties of fabric over a range of Reynolds numbers varied by speeds. Specially developed cylindrical methodology was used to quantify the effects of aerodynamic properties and fabrics' surface parameters
