    Abstract

    The National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Bangalore has been engaged in the research of autoclaves for the past three decades and has pioneered their development and usage in India for aerospace/aircraft structural applications. The autoclaves at NAL have played a significant role in all the major national aircraft / aerospace programs. The largest aerospace autoclave in India (working size of 4.4m diameter and 9.0 m length) has been successfully commissioned at NAL. This paper gives the technological challenges faced and innovative concepts that were introduced in these autoclaves.
