Numerical Simulation of Joining Ropes by Sewing Stitches
Braided structures are widely used in numerous contexts including everyday practice. In most cases, rope ends are knotted to form various types of loops or tie them to rigid body parts; however, knots take up space that may not be available in some application scenarios, thus making them unsuitable for certain purposes. Hence, this paper introduces first development steps of a method for the numerical simulation of rope ends connected by sewing stitches.
