A probabilistic fracture mechanics model of structural reliability is described that considers failure to occur as the result of subcritical and catastrophic growth of pre-existing cracks that escape detection. The model considers cracks to be two-dimensional and is capable of treating many of the input parameters as random variables and can consider arbitrary inspection schedules. Numerical results for twodimensional cracks in a weld joint in a large reactor pipe show that the ratio of failure… CONTINUE READING
