NASA-STD-5006, NASA TECHNICAL STANDARD: GENERAL FUSION WELDING REQUIREMENTS FOR AEROSPACE MATERIALS USED IN FLIGHT HARDWARE (17 FEB 1999)
NASA-STD-5006, NASA TECHNICAL STANDARD: GENERAL FUSION WELDING REQUIREMENTS FOR AEROSPACE MATERIALS USED IN FLIGHT HARDWARE (17 FEB 1999)., This standard is approved for use by NASA Headquarters and all NASA Centers and is
intended to provide a common framework for consistent practices across NASA programs.
This standard was developed by the NASA Materials and Processes Standards Group to
provide the NASA Centers with a common standard for welds on flight hardware components.
This standard does not provide the detailed process and quality assurance requirements for
weldments on flight hardware. Instead, it is intended as a higher level document which states
minimum requirements for the design of welded hardware. This standard provides general
directions and describes the type of information that NASA expects for welded structures.
When this standard is specified on contract documents, the contractor shall submit a detailed
weld process specification which meets the intent of this standard. Industry, Government, and
company specifications can be used for welding flight hardware if they contain the information
required by this standard. This document is the original release of this standard.
