PWB Solder Joint Life Calculations Under Thermal and Vibrational Loading
D. Barker, A. Dasgupta, and M. Pecht
The goal of automating PWB solder joint fatigue life calculations into
a design environment is to make reliability assessment information available
to the designer as early as possible and in an easily understood and implemented
manner. This paper discusses the assumptions and details of automating
the fatigue life calculations and emphasizes how the design database is
used to minimize input from the user.
