Accelerated Load Spectrum

  • Hung Nguyen-SchäferEmail author


In general, the load spectrum is too large and extensive to test the lifetime of a component. To hasten the testing time and to reduce costs, the load spectrum should be accelerated so that its much shorter testing time is equivalent to the real lifetime for the load spectrum. The equivalent load spectrum is called the accelerated load spectrum.
