The MIL HDBK 310 standard application primarily provides climatic data for use in engineering analysis to develop and test military equipment and materials. The data provided are intended to serve as natural environmental starting points for a series of engineering analyzes to derive environmental design criteria for the material.
The climate data is also intended to provide guidance in the development of environmental testing for the material. This specification provides climatic information for land, sea and air environments where military equipment may be required to operate. These data represent free air (ambient) conditions and should not be confused with the response of the material to these conditions or to a platform on which the material may be located.
The selection of specific climatic values in this document should only be made after the geographic span, handling and logistics requirements, and operational requirements of the material under development have been determined.
Climatic data for the region south of 60°S latitude are not considered in this document. The climate data in this manual should not be used to develop material for a specific geographic location or abnormal location such as a mountain top. This type of climate support is available through the Office of Primary Responsibility (OPR) for each military service.
The possible adverse effects of climatic conditions on the material are not discussed in this handbook. This manual does not include induced environments that may be encountered during storage or transportation, or caused by a platform on or in which material may be present.
Unless otherwise noted, information provided for one climate element does not occur at the same time or location as information provided for another climate element. Climate data in this handbook should not be used as direct test values without consulting MIL-STD-810 or other appropriate environmental test documents.
These provided data are intended to serve as the natural environment for sequence engineering analysis starting points to derive environmental design criteria for the material.
EUROLAB also provides MIL-HDBK-310 testing services within the scope of other military testing services. Thanks to these services, businesses receive more effective, high-performance and quality testing services and provide safe, fast and uninterrupted service to their customers.
