Step-Stress Accelerated Random Vibration Life Testing
In order to reduce the sample size and test time, a step-stress accelerated random vibration life testing (ARVLT) method is presented. And the method of parameter estimation is also proposed. Through this testing method, the exaggeration factor K can be obtained rapidly, so that the result can be used as the technical basis of conducting an equivalent accelerated vibration testing of the product. In addition, the reliability of the product under the normal operation stress level can be extrapolated.
