Abstract : Many claims have been made, some extravagantly, regarding fluidic system reliability. For the most part these claims have been substantiated qualitatively in many applications. However, in the past, quantitative methods have not been available to either predict reliability or to design accelerated failure experiments. The report describes work performed over a two year period with the purpose of developing an accelerated testing method and a method of predicting system life. (Modified author abstract)
