Methods for Accelerating Physical Validation Tests

When developing a physical durability test, engineers are interested in how the real load environment can be represented in a shorter and simpler way that maintains the equivalent damage content seen over a long service life. It is also valuable if the testing can be simulated up-front to predict the results and avoid expensive surprises. This workshop introduces a framework to guide you towards the most efficient representation of loading that maintains damage content while accelerating the test time and what simulation methods are available.‚Äč
