For 20 years, ERI instructors have been helping aircraft engineers measure, analyze and understand in-flight and in-storage environments in terms of potential damage to aircraft electronic and other equipment. And to use that understanding to develop more rugged aircraft products. And to implement appropriate environmental tests so that failures will occur in the lab, not in flight.
Climatic environmental tests? Mostly climatic chambers stressing aircraft hardware with hot and cold temperature extremes, humidity, sunlight, sand-and-dust, sometimes salt spray, altitude.
Dynamic environmental tests? Our greatest emphasis has been on mechanical shocks, also sinusoidal and random vibration.
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.
