Overview

When scientifically planned and conducted, burn-in testing offers one of the most effective methods of reliability screening at the component level. By testing individual elements under constant temperature stress, electrical stress, temperature cycling stress, or a combined thermal-electrical stress, burn-in testing can identify discrete faults that may be harder to perceive at the assembly, module, or system level.

This book covers all aspects of burn-in testing, from basic definitions to state-of-the-art concepts. Drawing on a broad database of studies, Burn-In Testing emphasizes mathematical and statistical models for quantifying the failure process, optimizing component reliability, and minimizing the total cost.

Vividly illustrated with figures, tables and charts, Burn-In Testing includes:

  • Definitions, classifications, and test conditions
  • A review of failure patterns during burn-in
  • Seven general mathematical models including four bathtub curve models
  • A quick calculation approach for time determination
  • Representative cost models and burn-in time optimization
  • The bimodal mixed-exponential life distribution applied to quantify and optimize burn-in
  • The Mean Residual Life (MRL) concept applied to quantify and optimize burn-in
  • The Total Time on Test (TTT) transform and the TTT plot applied to quantify and optimize burn-in
  • Accelerated testing and its quantification
  • A roadmap for practical applications

With each chapter, Burn-In Testing also offers the appropriate FORTRAN code for the processes described.

Burn-In Testing isideal for practicing engineers in the fields of reliability, life testing, and product assurance. It is also useful for upper division and graduate students in these and related fields.
