This study presents an integrated approach for the simulation of hygro-thermo-vapor-deformation analysis of electronic packages by using peridynamics. This theory is suitable for such analysis because of its mathematical structure. Its governing equation is an integro-differential equation and it is valid regardless of the existence of material and geometric discontinuities in the structure. It permits the specification of distinct properties of interfaces between dissimilar materials in the direct modeling of thermal and moisture diffusion, and deformation. Therefore, it enables progressive damage analysis in materials or layered material systems such as the electronic packages. It describes the validation procedure by considering a particular package for each thermomechanical, hygromechanical deformation as well as vapor pressure predictions. Also, it presents results concerning failure sites and mechanisms due to hygro-thermo-vapor-deformation.
