Example of the Destructive Degradation Platform
This example is patterned after an example from Escobar et al. (2003). The data consist of measurements on the strength (measured in newtons) of an adhesive bond. Temperature is considered to be an acceleration factor. The product is stressed until the bond breaks and the required breaking stress is recorded. Because units at normal use conditions are unlikely to break, the units were tested at several levels over a wide range of temperatures. Strength less than 50 newtons is considered failure. You want to estimate the proportion of units with a strength below 50 newtons after 260 weeks (5 years) at use conditions of 35 degrees Celsius.
