Document Scope: 

Fracture control shall be required on all human-rated space systems to preclude catastrophic failure. Fracture control provides a specialized methodology to address the consequences of naturally occurring and service-induced flaws, damage, or cracks in a part or structure. This document establishes the fracture control requirements for all human-rated spaceflight systems including payloads, propulsion systems, orbital support equipment, and planetary habitats.
