General Fusion Welding Requirements For Aerospace Materials Used In Flight Hardware

This standard establishes the processing and quality assurance requirements for manual, automatic, machine, and semiautomatic fusion welding for space flight applications and special test equipment used for testing flight hardware within NASA. This standard covers all fusion processes used for joining metallic materials. This includes, but is not limited to: arc welding (AW), solid state welding (SSW), resistance welding (RW), and high energy density welding (HEDW).
