A statistical degradation model for the service life prediction of aircraft coatings: With a comparison to an existing methodology

An advance on the model used by Guseva et al. [1] for estimating the service life of organic coatings under service conditions from accelerated test results has been developed. Instead of modelling just the times to failure, this new approach uses the complete degradation curve and allows for a more general specification of the failure time distribution. This modified model was then applied to the … Continue reading A statistical degradation model for the service life prediction of aircraft coatings: With a comparison to an existing methodology
