NASA-STD-5009, NASA TECHNICAL STANDARD: NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION REQUIREMENTS FOR FRACTURE CRITICAL METALLIC COMPONENTS (09 NOV 2006)
NASA-STD-5009, NASA TECHNICAL STANDARD: NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION REQUIREMENTS FOR FRACTURE CRITICAL METALLIC COMPONENTS (09 NOV 2006)., This standard is published by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to
provide uniform engineering and technical requirements for processes, procedures, practices,
and methods that have been endorsed as standard for NASA programs and projects, including
requirements for selection, application, and design criteria of an item.
NASA-STD-5009 supersedes NASA-STD-(I)-5009, Interim Nondestructive Evaluation
Requirements for Fracture Critical Metallic Components, and MSFC-STD-1249, Standard
NDE Guidelines and Requirements for Fracture Control Programs.
This standard is approved for use by NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including
This standard establishes the nondestructive evaluation (NDE) requirements for any NASA
system or component, flight or ground, where fracture control is a requirement. This standard
specifically defines requirements for nondestructive evaluation in support of NASA-STD-5019, Fracture Control Requirements for Spaceflight Hardware.
