FRACTURE CONTROL PLAN FOR JSC SPACE-FLIGHT HARDWARE
|Publication Date:||1 March 2018|
The purpose of this document is to provide a general FCP for implementation of Fracture Control programs on NASA/JSC controlled space-flight hardware to meet the requirements specified in NASA-STD-5019, Fracture Control Requirements for Spaceflight Hardware; SSP 30558, Fracture Control Requirements for Space Station; and SSP 52005, Payload Flight Equipment Requirements and Guidelines for Safety- Critical Structures. The latest issuances of cited documents will be used unless otherwise approved by the FCM.
This plan is applicable to all JSC controlled manned space-flight hardware that is the responsibility of NASA/JSC. Other NASA centers or agencies may adopt this plan with the concurrence of the responsible Fracture Control group.
Additionally, all hardware that deviates from the certified design configuration will require an update to the existing Fracture Control analysis and classification in accordance with this FCP.
