2 2 Background: Purpose of an Autoclave Device for Curing Components Made of Composite Materials Under Heat and Pressure High-Strength, Low Mass Very Low Void Ratio 10x Wet Layup Image Courtesy

3 3 Project Objectives Senior Design 1Senior Design 2 TasksConcept Generation and Selection Complete Pressure Vessel Construction Detailed Design, Ready for Construction Test Pressure Vessel Spec Stock PartsFinal Assembly Test Autoclave DeliverablesComplete Autoclave DesignComplete, Operable Autoclave Partially Built Pressure VesselManual for Operation Some Parts Obtained

4 4 Benchmark: ASC Process Systems Econoclave 22” Dia x 48” Long Working Volume 200psig Max Pressure 500 o F Max Temperature 5 o F Temp Uniformity PC User Interface Electric Heat Extensive Safety Systems Fast-Closing Door Priced from $85k-$120k plus delivery and setup

5 5 Potential Users of an Autoclave at RIT MET Department--Student Projects Proposed location: Composites Lab Student Teams: Baja, Formula, Aero ME Department for Research CIMS Future Senior Design Groups Anyone Needing a super lightweight structure Possible Outside Users Future, Unforeseen Uses

6 6 Why Have an Autoclave at RIT? Strong lightweight components are becoming increasingly important Rented Autoclave Time is Rare and Expensive Production-Scale Utility Bills can reach $750/run On-Site Option Offers Convenience Could be Customized for Other Future Uses Learning Tool Enables Ongoing, Long-Term Research Renting Time Could Generate Funding
