Reliability Physics Analysis Tools for Implementing DO-160G STANDARD

Read how to apply Reliability Physics Analysis (RPA) in Ansys Sherlock to the DO-160G standard which covers “Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment” in the aerospace industry. PCBs installed in any airborne vehicles can be simulated in Ansys Sherlock to assess the vibrational and solder fatigue analysis in order to predict the life cycle/ Time-to-failure (TTF) of key components and the board itself.

Reliability Physics Analysis Tools for Implementing SAE J3168 STANDARD

Read how to apply Reliability Physics Analysis (RPA) in Ansys Sherlock to the SAE J3168 standard, covering Electrical, Electronic, Electromechanical Equipment, Modules and Components. This standard was jointly developed by the SAE Automotive Electronic Systems Reliability Standards Committee and SAE Avionics Process Management Committee, and is the first reliability physics analysis (RPA) standard developed specifically for use in the Aerospace, Automotive, Defence and other High-Performance (AADHP) industries.

Part 1: Using Simulation of Electronics Reliability to address industry standards (SAE J3168, MIL-810G, GMW3172 and/or DO-160G)

It is increasingly important for product designers to consider electronics durability and PCB reliability across the product’s entire service life – accounting for all external influences that it will experience during production, shipping, and the environment during its operation. Here we look at how simulation is used to satisfy the requirements dictated by common industry standards.

Moving towards a Comprehensive Virtual PCB Testing Platform

ANSYS Simulation results for Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs)

Trends such as such as Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things (IoT), drones, smart home technology and autonomous vehicles are continuing to push PCB technology to its limits. Electronics engineers are now needing to focus on more than just the electromagnetics aspects of PCB design, and are increasingly concerned about power consumption, thermal & vibration issues linked to reliability concerns in harsh environments.

Guest Blog by Monash HPR: Optimising rocket motor bulkhead using Ansys Discovery Live

Monash HPR (High Powered Rocketry) is a student team dedicated to the design and construction of high-powered rockets to compete in the 10,000 ft and 30,000 ft categories of AURC. Read about how their use of Ansys simulation delivered 85-92% weight reduction during the design and optimisation of their rocket motor bulkheads.
