Aerospace Composite Parts, Without the Autoclave

Modern aerospace structures are commonly built up from layers of carbon composite weaves which are piled, then baked (sometimes with pressure or vacuum) to consolidate the material into a strong, light part.
A team of MIT researchers have developed a technique that may eliminate the curing oven or autoclave in many assemblies, detailed in a paper published in the journal Advanced Materials Interfaces.
“If you’re making a primary structure like a fuselage or wing, you need a pressu…
