Nondestructive Evaluation Requirements For Fracture Critical Metallic Components

The purpose of this standard is to establish the nondestructive evaluation (NDE) requirements for any NASA system or component, flight or ground, where fracture control is a requirement. This standard defines the primary requirements for NDE in support of NASA-STD-5019, Fracture Control Requirements for Spaceflight Hardware. NDE applied in-process for purposes of process control is not addressed in this document. This standard is applicable to the fracture control of metal components, e.g. aluminum, steel, titanium, and nickel alloys for any NASA system or component, flight or ground, where fracture control is a requirement.
