A reliability based treatment system for actual load history

Xiong, J.J., Shenoi, R.A. and Zhang, Y. (2005) A reliability based treatment system for actual load history Fatigue and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures, 28, pp. 875-889. (doi:10.1111/j.1460-2695.2005.00924.x).

This paper seeks to establish an integrated and practical data treatment system for actual load history reliability analysis. A convergence–divergence counting procedure is presented to extract all load cycles from a load history of divergence–convergence waves. The lowest number of load history sampling is established on the basis of the damage-based prediction criterion. A parameter estimation formula is proposed for hypothesis testing of the load distribution. The examples of its application for the data treatment of actual load history are given. The proposed data treatment system has been shown to have valid and practical characteristics in analysing reliability results.
