maximum design pressure (MDP)


ECSS-E-ST-32C Rev. 1


pressure equal to MEOP*Km*Kp


  • NOTE 1 MDP correspond to design limit loads
  • NOTE 2 MDP is equal or larger than MEOP.
  • NOTE 3 Km is a factor which takes into account the representativity of the mathematical models predicting MEOP and it is defined by the entity defining MEOP (for definition of Km see ECSS-E-ST-32-10 ‘Factors of safety’).
  • NOTE 4 Kp is the project factor (for definition of Kp see ECSS-E-ST-32-10 ‘Factors of safety’)
