Efficient Tools For Reliability Analysis Using Finite Mixture Distributions
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-12-02)
The complexity of many failure mechanisms and variations in component manufacture often make standard probability distributions inadequate for reliability modeling. Finite mixture distributions provide the necessary ...
Inference and Updating of Probabilistic Structural Life Prediction Models
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-09-27)
Aerospace design requirements mandate acceptable levels of structural failure risk. Probabilistic fatigue models enable estimation of the likelihood of fatigue failure. A key step in the development of these models is ...
