IEEE Reliability Boston Chapter Meeting

Craig Hillman will be presenting on Physics of Failure at this regional event. His presentation will discuss the Physics of Failure is the leveraging the knowledge and understanding of processes and mechanisms that induce failure to predict reliability and improve product performance. PoF is a critical element in best practices in Design for Reliability. The concept of Physics of Failure, also known as Reliability Physics, involves the use of degradation algorithms that describe how physical, chemical, mechanical, thermal, or electrical mechanisms evolve over time and eventually induce failure. The specific term arose from an attempt to better predict the reliability of early-generation electronic parts and systems; however, the concept of Physics of Failure is common in many structural fields.

This presentation will provide an introduction to Physics of Failure (PoF) and Reliability Physics (RP)terminology, philosophy, approach, methods and tools for designing Quality, Reliability and Durability (QRD) into products and systems. The PoF/RP approach integrates reliability into design activities via a science-based process for evaluating the potential failure susceptibility and risks of specific materials, structures and technologies in specific applications. This enables a virtual “analyze and optimize” form of reliability growth where susceptibility to failure risks can be design out or mitigated, while a design is still on the CAD screen, rather than by physically building, testing and fixing prototype parts. Attendess will find this information useful for implementing a PoF or RP program (or, more importantly, reducing engineering costs, time to market, and warranty returns)

 

If you would like to meet with Craig while he is in the area, please contact Mark Musitano.
