Abstract : In this interim report the author presents an annotated bibliography of some selected papers dealing with the general topic of accelerated life testing. This bibliography is an outcome of a study to determine those physical models which are useful for inferences from accelerated life tests. Consequently, the majority of the contributions here deal with papers whose texts refer to engineering and physical models. Exceptions to this are made whenever the text of a paper has material which could be useful for analyzing the results of an accelerated life test wherein the assumption of a physical model may be appropriate. Also included in this bibliography are contributions dealing with models for fatigue failure, since the mechanisms which cause fatigue failures have nice physical interpretations.
