Thermal cycling tests conducted on tin plated contacts were used in conjunction with materials aging data to develop a fretting degradation model. Parameters such as thermal swing, temperature extremes, dwell times and number of cycles are incorporated in the model to account for aging processes such as micro-motion, oxidation rate and stress relaxation.
