Self-Sealing Breakaway Valves for Crash-Resistant Aircraft Fuel Systems(STABILIZED Jan 2012)
MIL-STD-1290, 14 CFR 27.952, and 14 CFR 29.952 provide crash resistant fuel system design and test criteria that significantly minimize fuel leaks and occurrence of post-crash fire in survivable impacts. This document does not change and does not authorize changes in or deviations from MIL-Standard or regulatory requirements. This document provides guidance for the design, performance, and test criteria for self-sealing breakaway valves.
This document has been revised extensively for the following:
Add requirements for specification and testing at all operating temperatures
General revision to remove/replace references to cancelled standards and to improve the document readability
Convert “shall” into “should/is/are/may/will” as appropriate
Add reference to ARP8615 for design and verification requirements
Fuel systems modules
Failure modes and effects analysis
