About this book


Reliability Physics and Engineering provides critically important information that is needed for designing and building reliable cost-effective products. Key features include: • Materials/Device Degradation • Degradation Kinetics • Time-To-Failure Modeling • Statistical Tools • Failure-Rate Modeling • Accelerated Testing • Ramp-To-Failure Testing • Important Failure Mechanisms for Integrated Circuits • Important Failure Mechanisms for Mechanical Components • Conversion of Dynamical Stresses into Static Equivalents • Small Design Changes Producing Major Reliability Improvements This textbook includes numerous example problems with solutions. Also, exercise problems along with answers are included at the end of each chapter. Reliability Physics and Engineering can be a useful resource for students, engineers and materials scientists.
