Environmental testing - Part 2-85: Tests - Test Fj: Vibration - Long time history replication (IEC 60068-2-85:2019)

This document demonstrates the adequacy of specimens to resist dynamic loads without unacceptable degradation of its functional and/or structural integrity when subjected to the specified vibration test requirements as defined by a time history (long time history replication). These can either be recorded in measurement exercises or generated artificially. In both cases, this method allows for generating a test tailored to very specific applications. Typical applications are tests in which very specific deterministic transient, periodical or random excitation is necessary and the characteristics of the motion are not covered by other test standards. This includes time histories not sufficiently represented by the standard shock tests of IEC 60068-2-27 [2] or a general description by a shock response spectrum as in IEC 600682- 81 [3], periodical vibration that is not covered by a sinusoidal waveform as in IEC 60068-2-6, and random vibration that is not covered by the description of Gaussian or non- Gaussian (high kurtosis) broad-band random vibration of IEC 60068-2-64. However, the user is made aware that long time history replication uses a deterministic time history. Simulation of random vibration of any kind is approximated by quasi-random. In addition, additional mixed mode tests are possible with this test method by generating time histories that are representations of the required test signals. This includes tests of high complexity. The purpose of this test is different from IEC 60068-2-57 [4]. The purpose of IEC 60068-2-57 is an evaluation for a transient vibration using mainly a synthesized time history. A long time history test is mainly used for a durability and functionality test using an actual time history measured in a real field environment. It can also be used as a method to apply a simulated nongaussian time history. This document is applicable to specimens which can be subjected to vibration of a very specific nature resulting from transportation or operational environments, for example in aircraft, space vehicles and land vehicles. It is primarily intended for unpackaged specimens, and for items in their transportation container when the latter can be considered as part of the specimen itself. However, if the item is packaged, then the item itself is referred to as a product and the item and its packaging together are referred to as a test specimen. This document can be used in conjunction with IEC 60068-2-47, for testing packaged products. Although primarily intended for electrotechnical specimens, this document is not restricted to them and can be used in other fields where desired (see Annex A). This document is applicable for single axis excitation.

Essais d'environnement - Partie 2-85 : Essais - Essai Fj: Vibrations - Reproduction dans le temps par accélérogrammes (IEC 60068-2-85:2019)

L'IEC 60068-2-85:2019 a pour objet de démontrer la capacité des spécimens à résister aux charges dynamiques sans dégradation inacceptable de leur intégrité de fonctionnement et/ou de structure, lorsqu'ils sont soumis aux exigences d'essais de vibrations spécifiées, définies par un accélérogramme (reproduction des vibrations dans le temps). Ces vibrations peuvent être enregistrées lors de sessions de mesure ou être générées artificiellement. Dans les deux cas, cette méthode permet de réaliser un essai adapté à des applications bien spécifiques.

Okoljski preskusi - 2-85. del: Preskusi - Preskus Fj: Vibracije - Dolga časovna replikacija (IEC 60068-2-85:2019)

Ta dokument izkazuje primernost primerkov glede odpornosti proti dinamičnim obremenitvam brez nesprejemljivega poslabšanja funkcionalne in/ali strukturne celovitosti, kadar so izpostavljeni podanim zahtevam preskušanja vibracij, kot določa časovna zgodovina (dolga časovna replikacija). Te so lahko zabeležene pri izvajanju meritev ali pa so ustvarjene umetno. V obeh primerih ta metoda omogoča ustvarjanje preskusa, ki je prilagojen zelo specifičnim uporabam. Tipični načini uporabe so preskusi, pri katerih je potrebno zelo specifično deterministično prehodno, periodično ali naključno vzbujanje in značilnosti gibanja niso zajete v drugih preskusnih standardih. To vključuje časovne zgodovine, ki niso dobro predstavljene v standardnih preskušanjih z udarci iz standarda IEC 60068-2-27 [2] ali v splošnem opisu spektra odzivov na udarce iz standarda IEC 600682- 81 [3], periodične vibracije, ki niso zajete v sinusoidni valovni obliki iz standarda IEC 60068-2-6, in naključne vibracije, ki niso zajete v opisu Gaussovih ali ne-Gaussovih (visoka sploščenost) naključnih širokopasovnih vibracij iz standarda IEC 60068-2-64. Vendar pa je uporabnik seznanjen, da dolga časovna replikacija uporablja deterministično časovno zgodovino. Simulacija morebitnih naključnih vibracij je približno zajeta z navidezno naključnostjo. Poleg tega so pri tej preskusni metodi možni dodatni preskusi kombiniranega delovanja z ustvarjanjem časovnih zgodovin, ki predstavljajo zahtevane preskusne signale. To vključuje zelo zahtevne preskuse. Namen tega preskusa je drugačen od standarda IEC 60068-2-57 [4]. Namen standarda IEC 60068-2-57 je ocenjevanje prehodnih vibracij s povečini sintetizirano časovno zgodovino. Preskus dolge časovne replikacije se v glavnem uporablja za preskus odpornosti in funkcionalnosti z dejansko časovno zgodovino, merjeno v realnem okolju. Uporablja se lahko tudi kot metoda za uporabo simulirane ne-Gaussove časovne zgodovine. Ta dokument se uporablja za primerke, ki so lahko izpostavljeni zelo specifičnim vibracijam zaradi transportnih ali obratovalnih okolij, na primer v letalih, vesoljskih plovilih in kopenskih vozilih. Zlasti je namenjen nezapakiranim primerkom in predmetom v njihovem transportnem vsebniku, pri čemer se slednji obravnava kot del samega primerka. Kadar pa je predmet zapakiran, se sam predmet obravnava kot izdelek, izdelek in njegova embalaža pa se obravnavata kot preskušanec. Ta dokument se lahko uporablja v povezavi s standardom IEC 60068-2-47 za preskušanje zapakiranih izdelkov. Čeprav je primarno namenjen elektrotehničnim primerkom, ta dokument ni omejen nanje in se lahko poljubno uporablja na drugih področjih (glej dodatek A). Ta dokument se uporablja za enoosno vzbujanje.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

INTRODUCTION

This first edition of IEC 60068-2-85 was initiated in 2008 and a first proposal was prepared in

2011. It was developed out of the existing standard IEC 60068-2-64:2008 which contains a

technically similar test method and modified accordingly. This facilitates usage and

maintenance of both standards.

Differences are that this document relies on a specified time history. A test spectrum is not

specified.

This part of IEC 60068 deals with long time history replication vibration testing intended for

general application to components, equipment and other products, hereinafter referred to as

”specimens”, that may be subjected to vibrations of an arbitrary nature not covered by the other

existing methods for vibration testing. The methods and techniques in this document are based

on digital control of vibration in the time domain which allow a more flexible definition of the

vibration input signal to suit individual cases that are specified in the relevant specification.

Compared with most other tests, test Fj is based on deterministic techniques, and the time

history is supposed to have a long duration. There are nearly no restrictions to the vibration

characteristics besides the technical limitations of the test apparatus.

As the vibration input signal in this test is specified by a digital time history stored in a file, there

are no general methods for comparing two different test severities. The vibration tolerances

cannot be given in a single measure, as this depends on the purpose of the test. Therefore, it

is emphasized that long time history replication testing always demands a high degree of

engineering judgement by the user and specifier. The writer of the relevant specification is

expected to select the testing procedure, test time history and its severity, tolerances and

analysis methods, appropriate to the specimen and its use.

The test method is based primarily on the use of an electrodynamic or a servo-hydraulic

vibration generator with an associated computer-based control system used as a vibration

testing system.

Long time history replication vibration testing can be used to identify accumulated stress effects

and the resulting mechanical weakness and degradation in the specified performance. This

information, in conjunction with the relevant specification, can be used to assess the

acceptability of specimens.

If the specimens are subjected to vibration of a deterministic transient or periodic nature

resulting from transportation or real life environments that are covered by other test methods,

these are generally preferred. See IEC 60068-3-8 [1] for estimating the dynamic vibration

environment of the specimen and based on that, selecting the appropriate test method.

Annex A provides guidance and a list of details that can be considered for inclusion in

specifications.

ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING –
Part 2-85: Tests – Test Fj: Vibration –
Long time history replication
1 Scope

This part of IEC 60068 demonstrates the adequacy of specimens to resist dynamic loads

without unacceptable degradation of its functional and/or structural integrity when subjected to

the specified vibration test requirements as defined by a time history (long time history

replication). These can either be recorded in measurement exercises or generated artificially.

In both cases, this method allows for generating a test tailored to very specific applications.

Typical applications are tests in which very specific deterministic transient, periodical or random

excitation is necessary and the characteristics of the motion are not covered by other test

standards. This includes time histories not sufficiently represented by the standard shock tests

of IEC 60068-2-27 [2] or a general description by a shock response spectrum as in

IEC 60068-2-81 [3], periodical vibration that is not covered by a sinusoidal waveform as in

IEC 60068-2-6, and random vibration that is not covered by the description of Gaussian or non-

Gaussian (high kurtosis) broad-band random vibration of IEC 60068-2-64. However, the user is

made aware that long time history replication uses a deterministic time history. Simulation of

random vibration of any kind is approximated by quasi-random.

In addition, additional mixed mode tests are possible with this test method by generating time

histories that are representations of the required test signals. This includes tests of high

complexity.

The purpose of this test is different from IEC 60068-2-57 [4]. The purpose of IEC 60068-2-57

is an evaluation for a transient vibration using mainly a synthesized time history. A long time

history test is mainly used for a durability and functionality test using an actual time history

measured in a real field environment. It can also be used as a method to apply a simulated non-

gaussian time history.

This document is applicable to specimens which can be subjected to vibration of a very specific

nature resulting from transportation or operational environments, for example in aircraft, space

vehicles and land vehicles. It is primarily intended for unpackaged specimens, and for items in

their transportation container when the latter can be considered as part of the specimen itself.

However, if the item is packaged, then the item itself is referred to as a product and the item

and its packaging together are referred to as a test specimen. This document can be used in

conjunction with IEC 60068-2-47, for testing packaged products.

Although primarily intended for electrotechnical specimens, this document is not restricted to

them and can be used in other fields where desired (see Annex A).
This document is applicable for single axis excitation.

maximum response spectrum

curve giving the value of the highest peak of the response of a linear single degree of freedom

system (SDOF system) to vibration, according to its natural frequency, for a given damping ratio

Note 1 to entry: The response is described by the relative movement of the mass of this system in relation to its

support.
3.16
fatigue damage spectrum
FDS

spectrum obtained by tracing the fatigue damage experienced by a linear single degree of

freedom system (SDOF) according to its natural frequency, for a given damping ratio and for a

given value of parameter b

Note 1 to entry: Parameter b comes from the Basquin law representing the Wöhler curve of the material constituting

the structure.

4 Requirements for test apparatus
4.1 General

The required characteristics apply to the complete vibration system, which includes the power

amplifier, vibrator, test fixture, specimen and control system when loaded for testing.

The standardized test method consists of the following test sequence normally applied in each

of the mutually perpendicular axes of the test specimen:

1) an initial vibration response investigation, with low level sinusoidal excitation, or low level

random excitation, (see 8.2 and Clause A.1);
2) the long time history replication as the mechanical load or stress test;

3) a final vibration response investigation to compare the results with the initial one and to

detect possible mechanical failures due to a change of the dynamic behaviour
(see 8.2 and 8.5).

Where the dynamic behaviour is known, and it is not considered relevant, or sufficient data can

be gathered during the test at full level, the relevant specification may not require pre and post

test vibration response investigations.
4.2 Basic motion

The basic motion of the fixing points of the specimen shall be specified by the relevant

specification. The fixing points shall have substantially identical motions in phase and amplitude

and shall be rectilinear relative to the direction of excitation.
4.3 Cross-axis motion

Cross-axis motion shall be checked, if required by the relevant specification, either before the

test is applied by conducting a sine or random investigation at a level specified by the relevant

specification, or during testing by utilizing additional monitoring channels in the two

perpendicular axes.

The maximum cross axis amplitude at the control point shall not exceed 50 % of the value of

the specified axis. With large-size or high mass spe
