The 3D Printing in Zero G technology demonstration mission onboard the International Station is illustrating the need to better understand how to establish characteristic material properties for emerging technologies where standards and specifications do not yet exist. Limitations to the sample size, due to crew time, limits the application of the traditional material allowables approach to develop materials property database for the designer. Various approaches to development of material databases were evaluated for use by designers of space systems who wish to leverage in-space manufacturing capabilities. This study focuses on alternative statistical techniques for baseline property development that may be more appropriate for in-space manufacturing.
