Paper Abstract

In this paper we define what we consider the current defacto paradigm for accelerated testing, discuss what is wrong with it, introduce a more rigorous paradigm, and develop some theory for the new paradigm. Examples used for illustration include modeling degradation of connectors under cyclic stress, modeling degradation of metal films, and a pure Arrhenious thermal model of failure.
