Fundamentals of Climatic Testing

Climatic testing is required to ensure hardware will survive and operate under the climatic conditions it will encounter in service use. This class will cover the origin of requirements, the details of the equipment required, typical test scenarios, and ways to interpret the results. Tests include temperature, temperature shock, humidity, altitude, rain, solar, salt/fog, ice, dust/sand and more.
