Nodal three-dimensional woven textiles

L.W. Taylor; X. Chen    The University of Manchester, Manchester, UK

Abstract

Truss configurations provide a reinforcing structure from the inherent geometrical assembly of its strut members, either in a two-dimensional (2D) plane, known as a planar truss structure, or a three-dimensional (3D) form when combining numerous 2D truss configurations within one complete structure. The nodal 3D woven structures (N3DWSs) are developed from the concept of the 2D planar truss frameworks and 3D weaving based on the principles of conventional weaving technology. Combining the 3D solid and hollow woven architectures with the weaving principles allows the N3DWS to be designed and manufactured. The nodal truss configuration ...
