Subject: Humidity Effects on Reliability
I am trying to ascertain the effects of humidity on component reliability. The purpose is to determine if dehumidifying an aircraft and its installed systems while on the ground is cost effective from a reliability perspective. The aircraft will be stationed in the UK where relatively high humidity is present in a relatively cool environment. This is contrary to where higher temperatures are usually associated with higher humidity. Does anyone know where I can find any data on humidity and the effects on reliability of airborne electronic systems? I am particularly interested in the time period that the systems are not operating.
