Subject: RADC-TR-89-281 update?
Does anyone know where I find a copy of this document or an updated version of this document. What I am looking for is a physics of failure methodology and a way to relate it to a MTBF. Thanks

This report, RADC-TR-89-281, is an old Rome Laboratory in-house report for finite element analysis. This report shown how a finite element analysis is used to predict the mechanical response of an electronic assembly exposed to thermal and vibration environments. The results of these analyses were used to estimate surface mount solder interconnections and microwire plated through hole connections when exposed to severe thermal environments. This report should be available from NTIS (National Technical Information Service) phone 703-605-6000. The code is ADA216907.
