Probabilistic Aspects of Life Prediction

Editor(s): W. Steven Johnson, Ben M. Hillberry

Seventeen peer-reviewed papers give you the latest information on probabilistic fatigue life prediction methodology, including how to accurately determine the useful life or inspection intervals for complex structures

Sections cover:

Probabilistic Modeling—life prediction, computational simulations, and service loading spectra

Material Variability—quality, performance, reliability, and uncertainties of various materials, including aluminum, ceramics, and steel, as they relate to fracture toughness and fatigue crack growth

Applications—realistic approaches to and applications of probabilistic fatigue life predictions

STP 1450 is a valuable resource for structural designers, fatigue and fracture engineers, and materials engineers who need to:
• Assure safety
• Avoid costly litigation
• Set meaningful inspection intervals
• Establish economic risks
