The scope of this paper is focuses on the study of the mean life of materials (solar mirrors from parabolic - trough collectors) from the field of renewable energies, using accelerated degradation/reliability testing. This paper is focused on influence of environmental factors (temperature, humidity, UV and salt spray) at mean life of solar mirrors from parabolic - trough collectors under accelerated testing conditions. In today’s highly competitive environment, companies are pressured to shorten their development cycles, reduce development costs and produce highly reliable products. Accelerated reliability/durability tests are a very powerful tool in achieving these goals, providing the means to observe failures more rapidly under higher-stress operating conditions while accurately predicting reliability under normal operating conditions.

Abstract

The scope of this paper is focuses on the study of the mean life of materials (solar mirrors from parabolic - trough collectors) from the field of renewable energies, using accelerated degradation/reliability testing. This paper is focused on influence of environmental factors (temperature, humidity, UV and salt spray) at mean life of solar mirrors from parabolic - trough collectors under accelerated testing conditions. In today’s highly competitive environment, companies are pressured to shorten their development cycles, reduce development costs and produce highly reliable products. Accelerated reliability/durability tests are a very powerful tool in achieving these goals, providing the means to observe failures more rapidly under higher-stress operating conditions while accurately predicting reliability under normal operating conditions.
