Abstract A companion paper introduced a Bayesian analysis methodology to determine appropriate non-periodic inspection intervals of fatigue-sensitive structures, so that their reliability remains above a prespecified minimum level throughout their service life. This paper extends the methodology to structures with elements subjected to different stress levels. The Bayesian approach presented in this paper is unique and novel in that it allows one to utilize judiciously the results of earlier… CONTINUE READING
