DfR Solutions Reliability Designed and Delivered

Physics of Failure Workshop

Posted by DfR Solutions on Feb 5, 2019 3:25:32 PM

LOCATION: Mahadevapura, Bangalore, India

DATE: February 15th, 2019, 9:00 am to 1:30 pm

Presented by Dr. Vidyu Challa

Dr. Vidyu Challa will be hosting a Physics of Failure workshop on February 15th, 2019 in Bangalore, India.  In this four hour workshop, you will learn fundamental materials behavior, modeling and simulation, and how to accurately predict failure behavior of electronics. The workshop will also feature a demonstration of Sherlock Automated Design Analysis™ Software

Physics of Failure (PoF), or Reliability Physics, involves the use of degradation algorithms that describe how physical, chemical, mechanical, thermal or electrical mechanisms can decline 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 PoF is common in many structural fields. It involves the process of using modeling & simulation based on the fundamentals of physical science (physics, chemistry, material science, mechanics, etc.) to predict reliability.

What to expect from this training:

  • Understand the basic concepts of Reliability Prediction using Physics of Failure
  • How Physics of Failure differs from MIL 217 prediction
  • Simulation tools used for Physics of Failure
  • How to do simulated ESS/QT/RDT/ALT (Thermal Cycling/thermal shock, vibration, Mechanical Shock etc.)
  • Understand the importance of product level testing using simulated tools
  • A demonstration of Sherlock Automated Design Analysis™ Software

Who should attend? This reliability engineering workshop based on Physics of Failure is for Designers & Reliability Engineers as well as Product Verification & Validation (QT) team members who are working on electronics & battery based systems.
