Abstract:

THE ARRHENIUS METHODOLOGY IS CURRENTLY ACCEPTED AS STATE-OF-THE-ART IN THE REALM OF PREDICTING THERMAL LIFE ON NON-METALLIC MATERIALS. APPLICATION OF THE ARRHENIUS METHODOLOGY REQUIRES THE AVAILABILITY OF EMPIRICAL LIFE TESTING DATA, WHICH MAY BE GENERATED FOR A VARIETY OF PHYSICAL/ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES FOR ANY GIVEN MATERIAL. A LARGE QUANTITY OF SUCH DATA HAS BEEN GENERATED BY A MULTITUDE OF SOURCES. HOWEVER, THE EXISTING INFORMATION IS FRAGMENTED. THIS PROPOSAL ADVOCATES A PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A COMPUTERIZED DATA BASE SPECIFICALLY TAILORED TO LIFE PREDICTION OF NON-METALLIC MATERIALS. OF PRIMARY IMPORTANCE WOULD BE THE COLLECTION ASSIMILATION OF EXISTING DATA, RESULTING IN A COMPREHENSIVE DATA BASE. SUBSE QUENTLY, SOFTWARE WILL BE DEVELOPED TO ACCESS THE DATA AND GENERATE LIFE PREDICTIONS, BASED ON BASIC OR MODIFIED ARRHENIUS LIFE EQUATIONS.THE SOFTWARE WOULD BE DEVELOPED IN A MANNER WHICH WOULD EASE ITS "TRANSPORTATION" BETWEEN VARIOUS HARDWARE SYSTEMS. IN ADDITION TO SINGULAR NON-METALLIC MATERIALS DATA, AGING PARAMETERS APPLICABLE TO ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS AND INSULATION SYSTEMS WOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE SYSTEM, WHERE APPLICABLE.
