MMPDS 11th EDITION -Matériaux métalliques et fixations


 Metallic Materials Properties Development and Standardization (MMPDS)


Metallic Materials Properties Development and Standardization  and its predecessor MIL-HDBK-5 are the preeminent sources  for aerospace component design allowables. 11 volumes : CHAPTERS 1, 2, 3A, 3B, 3C, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9

     The Metallic Materials Properties Development and Standardization (MMPDS) Handbook, is an accepted source

      for metallic material and fastener system allowables recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), all

      departments and  agencies of the Department of Defense (DoD), and the National Aeronautics and Space

      Administration (NASA), within the limitations of the certification requirements of the specific government agency.


MMPDS-11 supersedes MMPDS-10 and prior editions of the MMPDS Handbook as well as all editions of MIL-HDBK-5, Metallic Materials and Elements for Aerospace Vehicle Structures Handbook that was maintained by the U.S. Air Force. The last edition, MIL-HDBK-5J was cancelled by the U.S. Air Force in March 2006. This document contains design information on the mechanical and physical properties of metallic materials and joints commonly used in aircraft and aerospace vehicle structures. All information contained in this Handbook has been reviewed and approved using a standardized process. The development and ongoing maintenance process involves certifying agencies, including the FAA, DoD, and NASA, and major material suppliers and material users worldwide. The information and procedures in this Handbook are continuously reviewed, and modified or removed as determined to be appropriate. With advances in materials and fastener systems, and with the review process of existing information, periodic updates of the MMPDS should be expected. As such, it is recommended that the latest version of the MMPDS be used.
