PSD B will be more f r than will be PSD A. But it’s the g2/Hz power f r that results in fatigue. ◊ Grms is unrelated to stress, as illustrated above. Case B Consider Two Arbitrary PSDs having the same area

Grms - Regardless of it’s shape or qualitative value, the standard measure of the area of a PSD. The wise farmer places secondary significance in the magnitude of acres since it lacks qualitative value. Likewise, the 6DOF machine user should understand that Grms gives no qualitative value of the fatiguing potential of a vibration.

For impulsive and displacive excitations, fatigue results from repeated stress loading cycles at the component’s self-resonant frequency f r. Remember “Is it real or is it Memorex?” Uneven stress loading produces EOL implications.

Reason: Strain results from displacement, and Strain cycles equate to fatigue.

Fatigue relates to the velocity of the 1 st self resonant vibration bending mode, not acceleration.[4,5] To analyze it, it is best to express the velocity of vibration in the form of a spectrum of velocity frequencies. –A metric for its determination, the Damage Potential Spectrum, (DP(f), was introduced in 1995.[3] –The DP(f) Is a velocity spectrum, It Is derived from the acceleration PSD using fatigue “operators.” –Operators are the duration of applied stress T, vibration element damping ζ, and S/N fatigue constant, β of the damped element.

It differs from the PSD in that it is a velocity spectrum indicating fatigue potential, not spectral vibration power. It uses ‘operators’ to adjust for fatigue. Operators are: –Stress loading time (T), damping (ζ), fatigue slope (S/N) It is simply scaled in relative fatigue potential.

It is the average spectral intensity over a defined velocity spectrum bandwidth. It gauges the overall intensity of fatigue accumulation potential over the bandwidth. In general, a spectrum with higher DP(Avg) produces fatigue more rapidly than a spectrum with lower DP(Avg).

This presentation describes the DP(f) method of characterization of HALT/HASS machines.

Data Was Taken from Two Z Axis Identical Table Quadrants on Each Machine. Both Controllers Were Set At 10 Grms

Any reproduction of this material is prohibited by law. 16 DP(f) Fatigue Factors Used Fatigue Constants Were: –Duration = 60 minutes, Mean Damping Ratio ζ = 5%, Mean S/N β = 4. –ζ and β values are for Typical Vibration Testing as Recommended for Electronic Assemblies by MIL STD 810F Vibration. DP(f) Spectrums from 20 Hz – 2 KHz Were Estimated. –These Were Over-laid in Order To See Differences

Actual: ……………..Machine #2 More Damaging. DP(Avg) #1 = Fatigue Units DP(Avg) #2 = Fatigue Units DP(f) Fatigue Specific f r Exceed 500:1. No Relationship of Control Grms to Fatigue. Results suggest method of establishing machine effectiveness for comparative purposes.

Instead of only two, a systematic method using at least four measurement locations was established. The more locations, the better. DP(Avg) statistics are used.

Instrument zones, either Z axis or triaxial sensors. –The Qualmark “Tripod” may be used. Run ‘Standard’ control point ~ 10 Grms. Obtain DP(Avg) fatigue data for each zone.

When taking data, don’t change setpoint Grms. Average spectrums at least times. Zoom spectrums Hz to 3 KHz suggested - should be set by UUT characteristics, but be consistent! Obtain DP(Avg) from each table position. –(Similar to Grms of PSD). Statistically analyze DP(Avg) values.

STANDARD DEVIATION is range of non-uniformity. More zones produce more accurate Means and SD. Zone #1234 DP(Avg)

25 This material is protected by the copyright laws of USA. Any reproduction of this material is prohibited by law. 25 Adjustment Methods A shaker may be adjusted by “compensation” to raise or lower average fatigue values. 1) Fatigue is proportional to duration of applied stress. –Adjust screen times to achieve desired fatigue totals. 2) Fatigue is indirectly proportional to Grms magnitude. –Adjust Grms to effect desired fatigue stress time T. These general rules relate to average situations, actual DP(f) values should be used for specific test object analysis.

Earlier described “Experiment” was of this type. Not satisfactory for machine to machine comparison. –Statistical analysis of more data points provides vastly improved accuracy. Produces invalid competitive comparisons of one machine or company versus a second. Don’t waste your time on this or the use of Grms to define a shaker. A table survey is required.

It’s not! Apply “Hanks Rules” for more successful HALT-HASS results.

32 This material is protected by the copyright laws of USA.

Variations in g 2 /Hz and fatigue potential are relevant. At identical Grms settings, similar 6DOF chambers don’t have equal fatigue potential. DP(Avg) gauges table zone spectrums and overall machine fatigue producing potential.
