  Accelerated Stress Testing Handbook: Guide for Achieving Quality Products Electrical Engineering Accelerated Stress Testing Handbook Guide for Achieving Quality Products As we move closer to a genuinely global economy, the pressure to develop highly reliable products on ever-tighter schedules will increase. Part of a designer's "toolbox" for achieving product reliability in a compressed time frame should be a set of best practices for utilizing accelerated stress testing (AST). The Accelerated Stress Testing Handbook delineates a core set of AST practices as part of an overall methodology for enhancing hardware product reliability. The techniques presented will teach readers to identify design deficiencies and problems with component quality or manufacturing processes early in the product's life, and then to take corrective action as quickly as possible. A wide array of case studies gleaned from leading practitioners of AST supplement the theory and methodology, which will provide the reader with a more concrete idea of how AST truly enhances quality in a reduced time frame. Important topics covered include: * Theoretical basis for AST * General AST best practices * AST design and manufacturing processes * AST equipment and techniques * AST process safety qualification In this handbook, AST cases studies demonstrate thermal, vibration, electrical, and liquid stress application; failure mode analysis; and corrective action techniques. Individuals who would be interested in this book include: reliability engineers and researchers, mechanical and electrical engineers, those involved with all facets of electronics and telecommunications product design and manufacturing, and people responsible for implementing quality and process improvement programs.

  GeoMeasurements by Pulsing TDR Cables and Probes GeoMeasurements by Pulsing TDR Cables and Probes examines Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) research and provides information on its use as a robust, reliable, and economical production tool.Common uses for TDR technology include telecommunications and power industries, but the text examines applications such as measurement of moisture of unsaturated soils; detection of fluids for leak and pollution; measurement of water levels for hydrological purposes; measurement of water pressures beneath dams; and deformation and stability monitoring of mines, slopes, and structures.Chapters discuss:· basic physics of signal generation, transmission, and attenuation along the coaxial cable· probe designs and procedures for calibration as well as the variation in probe responses to changes in water content and soil mineralogy· variations in waveform characteristics associated with cable, deformation, cable calibration, and installation techniques for metallic cables in rock· several cases demonstrating the use of TDR cables in soil as well as weathered and soft rock· a rationale for the use of compliant cable in soil· the use of metallic cable (MTDR) and optical fiber (OTDR) to monitor response of structures· sensor/transducer components, connections from the sensors to the TDR pulser/sampler, and system control methods· available software for transmission and analysis of TDR signatures The diverse interest and terminology within the TDR community tends to obscure commonalities and the universal physical principles underlying the technology. The authors seek to crystallize the basic principles among the seemingly divergent specialties using TDR technology in geomaterials. By examining varied experiences, GeoMeasurements by Pulsing TDR Cables and Probes provides a synergistic text necessary to unify the field. More ...
