Panel Session 3: Degradation Modeling and Reliability Assessment


Introduction


Many products are designed with high reliability and have complex structures, such as commercial airplanes, automobile, etc. The traditional time-based reliability method are inapplicable to these cases as collecting failure data is extremely difficult. In recent decades, various types of degradation models have been introduced to model deteriorating behaviors of engineered systems, so as to facilitate reliability assessment and remaining useful life prediction. This session will present the recent advances in degradation modeling and reliability assessment.
