Subject: Crimp connection reliability testing
We have developed a stud type crimp connection - basically a washer with a shaped arm to which we crimp a wire. The wire size is 22awg.
We wish to do a pull test and a temp cycling test. What would be the appropriate parameters to base our tests on?

MIL-STD-810F "ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING CONSIDERATIONS
AND LABORATORY TESTS" presents methods for qualifying devices for use in various environments. For your device I would recommend the sections on temperature cycling and vibration be consulted for test guidance. The levels to which your device is subjected would depend on its intended use environment. I am unfamiliar with pull-test requirements.
