MIL-HDBK-5J, DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HANDBOOK: METALLIC MATERIALS AND ELEMENTS FOR AEROSPACE VEHICLE STRUCTURES (31 JAN 2003) [S/S BY MMPDS-01] (70MB DOWNLOAD)
MIL-HDBK-5J, DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HANDBOOK: METALLIC MATERIALS AND ELEMENTS FOR AEROSPACE VEHICLE STRUCTURES (31 JAN 2003) [S/S BY MMPDS-01] (70MB DOWNLOAD)., This document contains design information on the strength properties of metallic materials and elements for aerospace vehicle structures. All information and data contained in this handbook have been coordinated with the Air Force, Army, Navy, Federal Aviation Administration, and industry prior to publication, and are being maintained as a joint effort of the Federal Aviation Administration and the
Department of Defense. 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 MIL-HDBK-5 for review and analysis. Results of these analyses are submitted to the membership during semi-annual coordination meetings for approval and, when approved, published in this Handbook.
This handbook is approved for use by all Departments and Agencies of the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration. This is the last planned edition of MIL-HDBK-5. MIL-HDBK-5J is equivalent to MMPDS-01, the first edition of the Metallic Material Properties Development and Standardization Handbook, which is maintained by the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA plans to publish annual updates and revisions to the MMPDS. As a result, MIL-HDBK-5J is scheduled to be reclassifed as noncurrent in the Spring of 2004. It will be superseded at that time by the MMPDS Handbook.
