Physical Reliability Analysis
Composite materials are inherently more variable than homogeneous materials. For this reason statistical processes are often used to determine the effect of compound variabilities on the performance of the product in the field.
Performing a small number of physical tests can generate significant confidence in the ability of new components to meet their long-term life reliability requirements.
Typical tests may involve fatigue testing a sample of randomly selected components from a production batch. Weibull statistical probability analysis can be undertaken so that the production batch can be confidently released or quarantined depending on the outcome of the tests.
In depth understanding of the internal stresses within the individual laminar and matrix within the composite components, allows Engenuity to design experiments efficiently to deliver analysis expediently using statistical reliability predictions.
