This paper studies the compressive force distribution of a hexagonal pattern on a tubular structure. Variables are the spar and the wall thicknesses, tested cross-axially for both break and yield points. Results are compared to those of plaster of Paris, with the end goal of finding a superior method of creating splints and orthoses for upper limb support.
