Subject: Coffin-Manson Eq.
We're using Coffin-Manson equation to calculate the acceleration factor (AF) of solder joint (failure mechanism is thermal fatigue). The AF is only related to temperature range. The question is: if the temperature transition rate affects the AF? If so, what's the equation? In addition, are there any other equations to calculate the AF for the above condition? Thanks in advance! Sam.
