For over 40 years, ERI instructors have been helping automotive engineers measure, analyze and understand their over-the-road and off-road environments in terms of potential damage to on-board electronic and other equipment.
And to use that understanding to develop more rugged products. And to implement appropriate environmental tests so that failures will occur in the lab, not while being driven by customers.
Climatic environmental tests? Climatic test chambers are used to stress automotive hardware with hot and cold temperature extremes, humidity, sunlight, sand-and-dust, salt spray and altitude.
Dynamic environmental tests? Our greatest emphasis has been on mechanical shocks, the near-sinusoidal inputs of rail transport and the random vibration of driving surface inputs to road and off-road vehicles.
Accelerated Life Tests? Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) procedures are used to quickly find and eliminate design and process items that limit product life.
Don’t engineers study these subjects in college? Most such university instruction deals with mathematics and theory. Little if any instruction deals with the practical matters that many engineers need, and for which ERI is justly famous.
Here are outlines whose variations have been given on site to numerous automobile and automotive subsystem manufacturers:
