Abstract:

A method for defining locally geodesic curves on surfaces of revolution is given here for the purpose of accommodating practical filament winding situations where one may be able to depart from a pure geodesic due to the presence of surface friction. This departure may be necessary when winding odd shapes and it may also be desirable for the purpose of making a trade off between hoop and longitudinal stiffness of the filament wound composite. An analytical as opposed to manual calibration of a traversing-rotating filamentary winding machine is also included. Author
