Torture Test

Definition - What does Torture Test mean?

A torture test may also be referred to as a stress test.

Techopedia explains Torture Test

In a typical torture test, a computer may be forced to operate at 100 percent processing capacity for 24 hours. For mobile devices, the torture test also provides a measure of battery life under maximum usage. Reliability engineers use the torture test to determine a component or system’s operating life and particular modes of failure.
