From the Publisher
A practical guide to quick methods for designing electronic equipment that must withstand severe vibration and shock--and the only book that shows how to predict the operational life of electronic equipment, based on the component type and type of vibration and shock exposure. This 2nd Edition presents new material, never published before, on predicting fatigue life in sinusoidal vibration, random vibration and acoustic noise, and pyrotechnic shock. Each new concept is given one or more detailed sample problems, and there is extensive coverage of testing methods. Treatment is kept as simple as possible (consistent with the important governing equations), with emphasis on actual, currently-used hardware.
