Dynamic Updating of Cumulative Damage Models for Reliability and Maintenance Based upon Service Information
The purpose of this paper is to show that the time transformation (tt.) technique employed in B-models provides a useful method for updating the accuracy of models of cumulative damage (CD) based upon service information. An accurate model of CD can provide a useful tool (reference model) for the management (control) of a fleet of physical units subject to CD under cost and reliability constraints.
