ECSS-E-ST-32-01C – Fracture control (15 November 2008)

This Standard has been cancelled and replaced by ECSS-E-ST-32-01C Rev. 1 (6 March 2009).


This ECSS Engineering Standard specifies the fracture control requirements to be imposed on space segments of space systems and their related GSE.

The fracture control programme is applicable for space systems and related GSE when required by ECSS-Q-ST-40 or by the NASA document NST 1700.7, incl. ISS addendum.

The requirements contained in this Standard, when implemented, also satisfy the fracture control requirements applicable to the NASA STS and ISS as specified in the NASA document NSTS 1700.7 (incl. the ISS Addendum).

The NASA nomenclature differs in some cases from that used by ECSS. When STS/ISS-specific requirements and nomenclature are included, they are identified as such.

This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristic and constrains of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00.
