SCOPE OF HANDBOOK -
This Handbook is primarily intended to provide a source of design mechanical and physical properties and joint allowables. Material property and joint data obtained from tests by material and fastener producers, government agencies, and members of the airframe industry are submitted to MMPDS for review and analysis. Results of these analyses are submitted to the membership during semiannual coordination meetings for approval and, when approved, published in this Handbook.
This Handbook also contains some useful basic formulas for structural element analysis. However, structural design and analysis are beyond the scope of this Handbook.
References for data and various test methods are listed at the end of each chapter. The reference number corresponds to the applicable paragraph of the chapter cited. Such references are intended to provide sources of additional information, but should not necessarily be considered as containing data suitable for design purposes.
Applicable testing standards are identified by number only in the text. Full titles for these standards are listed in Appendix D.
