MIL-HDBK-17B, MILITARY HANDBOOK: POLYMER MATRIX COMPOSITES - VOLUME 1 - GUIDELINES (29 FEB 1988) [S/S BY MIL-HDBK-17/1]
MIL-HDBK-17B, MILITARY HANDBOOK: POLYMER MATRIX COMPOSITES - VOLUME 1 - GUIDELINES (29 FEB 1988) [S/S BY MIL-HDBK-17/1]., Volume I - Provides guidelines for the characterization of composite material systems to be used in aerospace vehicles and structures. Composite material systems must normally be evaluated in accordance with these, or equivalent guidelines, in order to be considered acceptable by government certification and procuring agencies. Volume II - Will provide a compilation of statistically-based mechanical property data for current and emerging composite material systems used in the aerospace industry. B-basis strength and strain-to-failure values will be presented along with related data. Volume III - Will provide information regarding materials and fabrication procedures, quality control, and design and analysis.
