Abstract

A reliability-based inspection strategy is proposed by incorporating uncertainties in nondestructive inspections into the fatigue reliability method previously developed by the authors. The additional sources of uncertainty incorporated are the detectability and the accuracy of the nondestructive inspection. The inspection outcomes are classified into three categories: nondetection, detection without size measurement, and detection with size measurement. A strategy is proposed for estimating the optimal time interval to the next inspection. If rescheduling the next inspection to an earlier date is desirable, the model suggests the time for the next inspection.
