MIL-STD-810H: US Department Of Defence Test Method Standard Environmental Engineering Considerations and Laboratory Tests
This three-day MIL-STD-810H Training or Military Standard 810H Testing Training class will provide education on the purpose of each test, the equipment required to perform each test, and the methodology to correctly apply the specified test environments. Vibration and Shock methods will be covered together and will include an overview of Sine and Random Vibration as well as classical waveform shock testing, drop testing, and Shock Response Spectrum Testing. Instrumentation, vibration equipment, control systems, and fixture design will be covered.
Each climatic test will be discussed individually, focusing on requirements, origination, equipment required, test methodology, and understanding of results. Class members will participate in a tour of a lab that daily performs the full spectrum of 810G tests. Discussion, supported by projected visuals and video clips. Commencing with a review of basic vibrations, we will explore vibration measurements and analysis. We’ll compare sinusoidal vs. random vibration testing systems, specifications, standards, and procedures. We will emphasize vibration and shock test fixture design, fabrication, experimental evaluation, and usage. We will study shock measurement, shock response spectrum (SRS), and shock testing.
Relation with RTCA-DO-160 Explained
- Training will provide some comparison between military tests against the FAA/EASA certification test requirements covered in RTCA-DO-160.
- For example, Fire Flammability will be covered in detail in this training.
- Differences in some test procedures, for example, Altitude, Temperature, Water Proofness / Rain / Immersion, Humidity, Contamination by Fluids, Vibrations, Shock and Crash Accelerations, Icing Freezing, and Salt Fog, will be explained with rationale.
- Demonstrating the differences between DO160 and 810 is a great way of understanding the tailoring process with MIL-STD-810H.
Relation with Industrial and Other Military Standards Explained
- In some cases, MIL-STD-810H tests may not be enough; especially when additional specific material requirements are concerned.
- Training covers a test standards session where examples from another military as well as industry standards are explained briefly. This session provides an understanding of the rationale for choosing MIL-STD-810 test methods or other military/industrial standards.
- For example, military or DO-60 Salt Fog test versus ASTM corrosion tests are explained with when and why you may need other tests.
- Test plans usually include EMI/EMC test procedures. Training will provide a short session with a general overview of the MIL-STD-461 testing and how to select procedures for your equipment and platform.
Emphasis Given to Tailoring
- Developing a test plan wrt MIL-STD-810 testing might be confusing and if not it is definitely a time-consuming process.
- Training will provide an understanding of why and when the Concepts of Operations document is needed and how to test requirements that are established. This will be covered by both presentations and specific product examples in use on specific platforms.
- How to develop a Lifecycle Environmental Profile will be given by examples.
- In the test method, the discussion will cover “what items” and “how” they will be tailored.
Platform and equipment test examples are provided in each test method presentation and discussion, including:
- Military aircraft platforms (fixed and rotary wing), ground vehicles, and navy ships
- Avionics, electrical and mechanical systems, and structural project applications
- Test tailoring examples to include the selection of tests, parameter levels, and durations
- Concepts of Operations (CONOPS) document and test curve establishment.
- Tailoring and Life Cycle Environmental Profile (LCEP)
- Mission Profile
Training Scope and Content
- A good understanding of product testing in view of MIL-STD-810G/H and other relevant military standards.
- Overview of Systems Engineering, V&V, and Concepts of Operations (CONOPS) document.
- Establishment of Test Requirements and Test Plans.
- Test Procedures, Scheduling, Implementation, and Test Reports.
- Tests are covered in detail per MIL-STD-810. Altitude, temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, acceleration, salt fog, explosive atmosphere, etc..
- Some of the MIL-STD-810H test methods are covered briefly; however, we ensure all questions are answered for each test method.
- Cases studies, sample reports, and discussions on issues.
- Design issues and test failure discussions.
- Risk management for test results and acceptance criteria.
- Design Recommendations.
- Four days of Military Standard 810H Testing Training (MIL-STD-810H) with an expert instructor
