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...
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,...
