The Metallic Materials Properties Development and Standardization handbook, and its predecessor MIL-HDBK-5, are the preeminent sources for aerospace component design allowables.
Since many aerospace companies manufacture both commercial andmilitary products, the standardization of metallic materials design data which are acceptable to Governmentprocuring or certification agencies is very beneficial to those manufacturers as well as governmental agencies.Although the design requirements for military and commercial products may differ greatly, the required designvalues for the strength of materials and elements and other needed material characteristics are often identical.Therefore, this publication provides standardized design values and related design information for metallicmaterials and structural elements used in aerospace structures.
The data contained herein is acceptable to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Departmentof Defense (DoD), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Approval by theprocuring or certificating agency must be obtained for the use of design values for products not containedherein.
MMPDS-04 was prepared by Battelle under contract with the FAA Willliam J. Hughes TechnicalCenter. It is covered under U.S. Copyright and is the only current form of the MMPDS Handbook. It rendersMMPDS-03, and prior published versions of MMPDS and MIL-HDBK-5 obsolete.
