INFLATABLE STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

November 7 - November 8

ABOUT THE SEMINAR

In recent years, the demand for large space structures in future space missions has increasingly stimulated the development of inflatable membrane structures owing to their feature of lightweight, high compact ratio, easy to fold and unfold and so on. Its form has received wide attention from researchers and a broad application prospect. Inflatable Structures are being used in the field of Space, Aerospace, Defense, Natural Disasters, engineering & commercial sectors. In future satellites, large-sized and light-weighted payloads will be required for maximum utilization of limited allowable space of launch vehicle. Inflatable structures are attracting the interests of scientists and engineers as a scientific platform in space exploration, over conventional space structures. 

The objective of this seminar is to create awareness for advanced Polymer, composite, materials for inflatable structures, their design and manufacturing technologies and specific application areas among the young scientists, academicians, engineers, and industrialists. During the seminar, the invited talks of expert from ISRO and Indian Academics Institutes & Industries will be delivered on the topics related to Inflatable Structure design, Analysis, Manufacturing, Materials, and Testing, etc. 

It is expected that the engineers, researchers, scientists, manufacturers & academicians involved in design, development, and production of Inflatable structures, materials and components will be immensely benefited from the deliberations. 

TECHNICAL PRESENTATIONS 

There will be technical presentations by the experts from academic institutions like IIT Roorkee, IIT Kanpur, and research organizations like ISRO, TIFR, DRDO, NAL and a number of private Industries on the following topics.

 Applications of Inflatable Structures in ground and Space environment.

 Materials for Space and Ground based Inflatable structures

 Qualification for Space environment and tests for Inflatable System 

 Folding and Deployment of inflatable Structures 

 Rigidization of Membrane-based Inflatable Structures
