Subject: ESS Vibration Exposure
Environmental Stress Screening Guidelines for Assemblies 1990 published by the Institute of Environmental Sciences indicate that; (1)After subsequent repairs and/or modifications, repeat screen at -3dB level (70% RMS g) for 50% duration; (2) Total number of vibration exposures should not exceed five. ##### It is not clear whether these values were based on the Random Vibration Spectrum shown in Page 15 which gives a 6 gRMS Vibration Level. QUESTION: The above parameters, can it be used for any Vibration Level ? Is there any other method to determine the maximum vibration exposure that will not use excessive amount of useful life ?
