0 Reviews
The most systematic, up-to-date coverage of burn-in testing available.
-- By Dimitri Kececioglu, the world's leading expert in reliability engineering.
-- Covers new techniques, including empirical MRL plots, TTT-transforms, TTT-plots, accelerated burn-in through temperature cycling, and more.
-- Includes extensive numerical examples with step-by-step solutions.

With this book, engineers can bring new sophistication to every aspect of burn-in testing, significantly improving the quality of finished products.

The book begins by introducing burn-in testing, its objective, working mechanisms, economic benefits, and types. Burn-in testing is compared with Environmental Stress Testing; several burn-in methods are compared, and test conditions are described in detail. The book provides a comprehensive list of burn-in terminology and acronyms; sophisticated physical insight into failure patterns and processes, several mathematical models; and quick methods for calculating burn-in time. It presents detailed coverage of the mean residual life (MRL) concepts; several representative cost models; and methods for quantifying and optimizing burn-in using bimodal mixed-exponential life distribution. The book focuses extensively on new techniques, such as TTT-transforms. This is a companion book to Environmental Stress Screening (Prentice Hall PTR).
