Abstract
SEVERAL FACTORS CAN DISTURB THE PERFECTION OF A WINDING AND LIMIT THE LENGTH WHICH CAN WOUND SUCCESSFULLY. THESE FACTORS INCLUDE TEMPERATURE CYCLING OF WOUND SPOOLS, IMPERFECTIONS OR VARIABILITY OF FIBER DIAMETER, SPOOL CONTOUR IRREGULARITIES, AND CROSSOVER LINES NOT FOLLOWING A REGULAR PATTERN LAYER AFTER LAYER. THIS PROPOSAL OFFERS DEVELOPMENT WORK LEADING TO A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WINDING EFFECTS AND TO METHODS AND HARDWARE THAT WILL ALLOW MORE PERFECTLY WOUND SPOOLS AND LONGER WOUND LENGTHS. PROPOSED WORK IS DIVIDED INTO WINDING PATTERNS SURVEY, AND SPOOL DESIGN.
