Better CAF Acceleration Equation

Classic CAF (Conductive Anodic Filamentation) is a two-step process, firstly the creation of a pathway by hydrolysis followed by electrochemical filament growth. Where there is no pathway there can be no CAF, hence existing acceleration factor equations which model the process as a single step are clearly incorrect. The project will determine a better acceleration factor equation for CAF and quantify the effects of Voltage, Temperature and Humidity hopefully enabling shorter testing time for CAF material qualification.
