Abstract : This report contains data and test results leading to the development of a technique for monitoring the cure of large plastics structures. The technique makes use of a Continuous Current Monitoring Device (CCMD) to follow the cure. The results of this study showed that CCMD techniques are feasible when applied to large continuous fiber reinforced plastics composite structures. In addition, it was demonstrated that the fabrication of large structures, complete with cure monitoring cells as required, can be carried out without difficulty. The technique is recommended as a standard method for following the curing process in large filament wound structures. (Author)
