Predicting the Elastic Properties of Two Dimensionally Braided Tubular Composite Structures Towards the Design of Braid-Reinforced Polymer Medical CathetersDownload
Two-dimensionally (2D) braided tubular composites have been utilized in a wide range of applications including medical equipment such as braided stents and catheters. Catheters are long flexible tubes used in catheterization procedures, such as angiography and ablations. In this thesis,...
Braided composite materials are a class of fiber reinforced composite materials which obtain their unique material properties from the interlaced fiber structure. The fiber orientation has a critical impact on the resulting material properties of the composite component and as a result, the...
