Abstract
An overview of important nondestructive evaluation considerations necessary for safe life qualification of aerospace propellant tanks is presented. Options for tank qualification without performing NDE are discussed. The concept of initial flaw size limits and their relationship to fracture mechanics analysis are compared to the capability of various NDE methods. It is concluded that it may not always be possible nor desirable to demonstrate safe life using NDE.
