Sandia Computer Modeling Aids Solder Reliability in Nuclear Weapons

Solder_Failure.jpg

Solder isn’t the first thing that comes to mind as essential to a nuclear weapon. But since weapons contain hundreds of thousands of solder joints, each potentially a point of failure, Sandia National Laboratories has developed and refined computer models to predict their performance and reliability.
