Distribution Testing

This portion of the testing is generally referred to as transportation or distribution testing. It is an attempt to bring the distribution environment dynamics into the testing laboratory in a controlled and repeatable fashion. The testing consists of a series of packaged vibration, free fall impacts (drop), compression, and possibly other tests that duplicate the hazards of the distribution environment in a repeatable manner.
