Braiding is a manufacturing process that is increasingly being used to manufacture pre-forms for Resin Transfer Moulding. A fast simulation method is presented for the prediction of the fibre distribution on complex braided parts and complex kinetic situations (e.g. changes in velocity, orientation). The implementation is suited for triangular surface representations as generated by many CAD software packages in use. Experimental results show that the results are sensitive to the friction conditions in particular regions. The friction conditions between the yarns and the mandrel are analysed, leading to the development of a slip indicator.
