Does anyone know of any NASA sites that provide full text documents (standards and technical reports) via the web for public use?


RE: Site for retrieving Technical Data

Technical documentation for what?

RE: Site for retrieving Technical Data

I'm specifically looking for information regarding the qualification of electronic device enclosures in regard to shock and vibration environments. What specifications exist for design of electronic enclosures, analysis of them under specified (or measured) shock environments and required tests to qualify them when fabricated.

These enclosures are what most of us would call "black boxes" and I'm interested in learning how to analyze, design and qualify them for use in spacecraft and land vehicles.

RE: Site for retrieving Technical Data

Shock and vibration practices used by NASA are published by the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology.

Hi MikeW,

Here is a list of several sites that you can obtain information from. Most of them are NASA sites, but one isn't.


Well, good luck finding what you need. Let me know if you find anyother good sites because I'm doing some research dealing with lean-dirct injection of fuel into combustors.

Good Luck,
