  abstract = {Permeability of textiles is a key characteristic for
		  composite manufacturing. Measurement of textile
		  permeability is a time and resource consuming process,
		  hence numerical prediction of the permeability is required.
		  Using the law of Darcy, permeability can be derived from a
		  simulation of the fluid flow, i.e. after solving the
		  Navier-Stokes or Brinkman equations. In this paper we
		  present the results of simulations with an extended version
		  of the freely available finite difference CFD software
		  package NaSt3DGP and we compare the results with those
		  obtained from a Lattice-Boltzmann code. The results are
		  validated with theory and experimental data.},
