Prediction of braid pattern on mandrels with constant non-circular cross-sections

Hajrasouliha, Jalil ; Nedoushan, R Jafari; Sheikhzadeh, Mohammad


In this study, a new useful mathematical model has been developed to predict the braid pattern for every point onto themandrel surface with non-circular cross-sections. The Reza-Jalil-Mohammad (RJM) equation thus obtained has beenproposed for the braid angle. The implementation and validation of this mathematical model has been discussed for acylindrical mandrel. It is observed that using RJM equation, one can get the arrangement of strands in circular braidingmachine for each mandrel with different cross-sections.
