This 3-hour webinar, which costs $300, by Steven Carlson is an overview of his 2-day seminar and will focus on these three topics:

* To understand how variations in coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE) can affect the magnitude of the displacements, forces, and stresses that are developed in electronic assemblies during thermal cycling environments and how these factors affect fatigue life.

* To understand how resonant conditions can affect dynamic displacements, forces and stresses in electronic assemblies during different sine and random vibration environments.

* To understand the concept of “damage accumulation” and how it can be used to determine the approximate fatigue life of various electronic assemblies due to different combinations of fatigue accumulated in thermal cycling and vibration environments.

This course is based upon the popular book Preventing Thermal and Vibration Failures in Electronic Equipment by Prof. Dave Steinberg.

Who should attend:
* R&D Electronic Engineers & Managers
* Packaging Engineers
* Quality & Reliability Engineers
* Test Engineers
* Manufacturing Engineers
* Mechanical Engineers
* Application & Sales Engineers

Steve Carlson is a Mechanical Engineer Analyst at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA.  He received his BSME at Arizona State University and MSME at California State University Northridge and has expanded the classical techniques developed by Mr. Dave Steinberg to include Solid Modeling and Finite Element Analysis to reduce analysis time, improve accuracy, and decrease product development time. He has worked on the mechanical design, analysis, testing and packaging of cost effective sophisticated electronic equipment that must work with a high degree of reliability in harsh thermal, thermal cycling, vibration and shock environments. He has been involved in these areas related to commercial, industrial and military applications for many years. He is the Principal Engineer at Carlson Mechanical Engineering and has provided consultant services to multiple companies in the areas of heat transfer, sine/random vibration and computational fluid dynamics.
