Abstract:

This report presents a systematized method for determining and predicting the effects of environments on USAF materiel. It covers the theory and use of computer techniques which will enable environmental test engineers to obtain information on the probable effects of various environmental elements, the required tests to insure environmental reliability, the hazardous combinations of materials and environments, the location and availability of test facilities, and similar environment-equipment relationship data. The system recommended is designed as an environment-oriented center which will be expanded and made increasingly useful by the addition of service modules. Each module improves the sophistication of the system by modifying queries for optimum response, by seeking environmental data from users of the service, by analyzing failure distribution data to provide equipment-environment failure data matrices, indicating hazardous combinations of materials for exotic environments, and by providing similar advanced and self-improving services as the need for such services becomes known.
