Open: Design Rules for Vacuum Chambers


Producing a vacuum chamber means defining the boundary conditions (inner and outer envelopes, operational constraints, etc.), choosing the material, designing the parts, manufacturing and assembling these parts together and putting them under vacuum. This paper gives the methodology, methods and hints for designing vacuum chambers.
