Abstract:Circular Braiding is a composite material preform manufacturing process that is used to manufacture bi- and
triaxial braids. A procedure is presented for relating braid patterns to spool patterns. The procedure is based
on the observation that physical removal of a bias spool from the machine corresponds to removal of a row or
column of intersections from the braid pattern matrix. The procedure can assist in the reduction of trial-anderror
in the product manufacturing process and enables new features in computational braiding simulation and
