    Abstract

    Autoclaves are important manufacturing tools used in the13; fabrication of high strength composite structures. In order13; to provide the necessary impetus to the research and development activities in the area of reinforced plastics, the Structural Sciences Division proposed importing a large autoclave at its lOth Scientific Advisory Committee meeting held on 1.8.1978. The Scientific Advisory Committee while accepting the necessity for obtaining the autolave for the divisional activity, desired that a feasibility study be made for indigenous design of such an autoclave. Hence, a preliminary study was carried out to determine the indigenous fabrication capability,availability of components and design complexities involved. Based on this preliminary study, specifications for a 2.4 m diameter - 6m long autoclave, which can be indigenously fabricated were13; finalised in consultation with scientists of Materials and13; Structural Sciences Divisions involved in the research amp; development activities of FRP structures.
