Section 10.3.0. Structural Configuration Analysis
The fracture control program must consider all of the design
details incorporated into the structural configurations as possible critical
items. It is as a part of this function
that the critical parts list is developed and each part analyzed for its
fracture propagation characteristics.
The method to be used to inspect the critical parts must also be
established. This will set the initial
flaw size that is used in the analysis.
Any testing which must be done to establish the damage tolerance of a
part is also done during this phase of the development.
