Simplifications and Speedup of Durability Test for Automotive Components or Systems 2002-01-0811

It would be a benefit to make multiple excitations equivalent with one or two simple inputs. To dramatically reduce the running time and speed up the durability test, the excitations have to be enhanced. For a complicated system and structure with many loading events, the block load is the easiest to apply and can result in equivalent damage. The main objective of this paper is to systemize some methodologies for the lab durability test in order to simplify the test setup or reduce the running time.
