Abstract

Reliability-based inspection and maintenance strategies are proposed to mitigate fatigue risk of a structure. This is based on the fatigue reliability method already developed by the authors. Using Bayesian updating approach, the fatigue risks are updated after each inspection, and fatigue control curves are proposed. The information is used to propose repair and replacement criteria. If rescheduling the next inspection to an earlier date is desirable, the model suggests the time for the next inspection. After an inspection, the method helps to decide whether to do nothing, inspect more frequently, or repair or replace the inspected parts.
