The last edition, MIL-HDBK-5J was cancelled by the U.S. AirForce in March 2006.
This document contains design information on the mechanical and physical properties of metallicmaterials and joints commonly used in aircraft and aerospace vehicle structures. All information containedin 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 majormaterial suppliers and material users worldwide. The information and procedures in this Handbook arecontinuously reviewed, and modified or removed as determined to be appropriate. With advances inmaterials and fastener systems, and with the review process of existing information, periodic updates of theMMPDS should be expected. As such, it is recommended that the latest version of the MMPDS be used.
