BS EN 16603-32-02:2014

Space engineering. Structural design and verification of pressurized hardware

Status : Under review, Current   Published : August 2014



This Standard defines the structural design verification of metallic and non-metallic pressurized hardware which includes pressure vessels, pressurized structures, pressure components (such as valves, pumps, lines, fittings, and hoses), and special pressurized equipment (e.g. batteries, heat pipes, cryostats, sealed containers, hazardous fluids container). External supports and structural interfaces of pressurized hardware are not covered by this standard. Solid propellant motor cases are not covered by this standard. Objectives of the associated verification process are primarily to demonstrate the qualification of design and performance, as meeting all specified requirements, and to ensure that the flight hardware is free from workmanship defects and acceptable for flight. This Standard applies to all space products and in particular to launch vehicles, transfer vehicles, re-entry vehicles, spacecraft, space station, landing probes and rovers, sounding rockets, payloads and instruments. This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristics and constraints of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00.
