This document establishes the fracture control requirements for all human-rated spaceflight systems including payloads, propulsion systems, orbital support equipment, and planetary habitats. Fracture control is implemented to reduce the risk of a catastrophic failure from a defect or damage. The intent of this standard is to provide fracture control requirements for spaceflight hardware. A variety of fracture control considerations and options are addressed, some of which may not be applicable to a given design. Information is provided to assist the user in the development of an effective Fracture Control Plan and other fracture control documentation.
