Environmental Testing Procedures

Course No. 425

(Course Outline shown below.)

For Whom Intended  This course is for test laboratory managers, engineers and technicians. It also helps quality and reliability specialists and acquisition personnel in government and military activities and their contractors. It is designed to serve the needs of personnel in a wide range of industries.

Brief Course Description  The course begins with an introduction and review of the many factors that must be addressed in order to undertake a meaningful environmental test. The instructor next discusses various environmental test applications such as product development, reliability, acceptance, qualification, life cycle, fatigue, accelerated, functional, endurance etc. Specific types of environmental tests including vibration, shock, vacuum, acoustic, thermal, climatic, and accelerated testing are discussed.

For each environmental test area, the basic theory is introduced along with examples of various test applications so that the students can gain a better appreciation for the subject matter prior to delving into the detailed test equipment, methods, and procedures.

For each testing environment, the course discusses the key features of the test facilities as well as the associated test equipment, including instrumentation and fixtures. Students will gain familiarity with specific test practices and procedures, including test levels and durations. This will include reviewing applicable specifications and standards, generating a test plan, and defining what is expected from the test. Options such as test tailoring and deviation from written requirements of test documentation will also be explored.

The course is presented as a series of highly-interactive lecture/discussion sessions. Special-interest discussions are encouraged outside of the regular course sessions.
