Ring weave dictionary: “quad”

The basic unit of this type of weaving seems to the four tires linked together.
I would like to call the four tires linked together a quad.

The belts of his one is made of tires that the sidewalls were removed, but he belts were not cut.

Ring weave dictionary: “quad center”

The center of a quad could be called a quad center.

The number of the quad centers could be used to determine a size of a woven sheet.

What would be the smallest diameter tube, practically woven, expressed in the
number of quad centers on its perimeter, using belts made out of tires?

I noticed on Gerd’s original site he had 3 different weaving types: Type H, L and D.

Unfortunately the pictures have been taken down. I wonder if one of them would eliminate the holes in the weave. The 3d cubes that were posted somewhere had no holes, but I’m not sure if that same weave works as a larger mat.


#122

Yes, I think that is correct. Gerd mentioned to modify the weaving to achieve no hole sheet.
I think it is possible, and I am planning to figure that out too. I am just too happy with what
I got, that I did not explore other type of weaving yet.

Coboy Kim Cowdroy did make computer image of woven sheet with no holes.


#123

In real life structure it is possible to weave a closed tube out of a sheet.
On sketchup computer images that is more difficult. The computer image
has to be started as a tube. Weaving tubes has the option to start weaving
a tube, or to weave a sheet and weave it shut into a tube.

I published, here, most of the things I have learned, to this time, about ringweave.

Ringweave on!


#126

I am wondering what the best resources are we can utilize to more concretely quantity the wave attenuation for a ring weave, or really any wave breaker for that matter.

I know Gerd was adamant the center of the ringweave would be calm, but will have to put a measurable number on that at some point.
