The Possibility of Using Technical Ceramics in Cross-Helical Flexible Hoses


The strength properties of a flexible hose made of titanium carbide and having a weave not previously used for engineering purposes are studied. During the finite element modeling, it is shown that the hoses of the proposed design are able to withstand pressure, justifying their industrial application. At the same time, they are able to demonstrate a sufficiently high flexibility, nontraditional in the context of the mechanical properties of technical ceramics. This opens up new possibilities for using ceramics in science and technology.
