A Multistate Physics Model of Component Degradation Based on Stochastic Petri Nets and Simulation

Multistate physics modeling (MSPM) of degradation processes is an approach proposed for estimating the failure probability of components and systems. This approach integrates multistate modeling, which describes the degradation process through transitions among discrete states (e.g., initial, microcrack, rupture, etc.), and physics modeling by (physics… CONTINUE READING
