JSC 65828B (W/ CHANGE-1), STRUCTURAL DESIGN REQUIREMENTS AND FACTORS OF SAFETY FOR SPACEFLIGHT HARDWARE (FOR HUMAN SPACEFLIGHT) (15-JUL-2014)
JSC 65828B (W/ CHANGE-1), STRUCTURAL DESIGN REQUIREMENTS AND FACTORS OF SAFETY FOR SPACEFLIGHT HARDWARE (FOR HUMAN SPACEFLIGHT) (15-JUL-2014)., This document establishes the structural requirements for human-rated spaceflight hardware including launch vehicles, spacecraft and payloads. These requirements are applicable to Government Furnished Equipment activities as well as all related contractor, subcontractor and commercial efforts. These requirements are not imposed on systems other than human-rated spacecraft, such as ground test articles, but may be tailored for use in specific cases where it is prudent to do so such as for personnel safety or when assets are at risk.
The requirements in this document are focused on design rather than verification. Implementation of the requirements is expected to be described in a Structural Verification Plan (SVP), which should describe the verification of each structural item for the applicable requirements. The SVP may also document unique verifications that meet or exceed these requirements with NASA Technical Authority approval.
