ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING CONSIDERATIONS AND LABORATORY TESTS
|Publication Date:||31 July 1995|
Purpose. This standard provides:
a. Guidelines for conducting environmental engineering tasktos tailor environmental testst o end-item equipment applications.
b. Test methods for determining thee ffects of natural and induced environments on equipment used in military or commercial applications.
Application. Thiss tandards hall notb e invoked on a blankbeat sis, but each requirement wbille assessed in terms of the need. Application of this standard eianr tlhye development phasoef the acquisition process is encouraged. Selected applicatioant other points in the acquisition process b me apy propriate. The methods of this standard are not all-inclusive. Additional environments or combinations of environments should be included in the environmental test specification when appropriate. The test methods of this standard are intended to be applied in support of the following objectives:
a. To disclose deficiencies and defects and verify corrective actions.
b. To assess equipment suitabilityf or the environmental conditions anticipated throughout iltisfe cycle.
c. To verify contractual compliance.
Limitations. This standard purposely does not address the following:
a. Electromagnetic interference (EMI).
b. Lightning and magnetic effects.
c. Nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons' effects.
d. Piece parts, such as bolts, wires, transistors, and integrated circuits.
e. Tests of basic materials. f. Certain aspects of the safety testing of munitions.
g. Test criteria utilized for determining packaging performance or design.
The purpose of this standard is to standardize the design and conduct of tests for assessing the ability of equipment to withstand environmental stresses it will encounter during its life cycle,... View More
