Asset health reliability estimation based on condition data

Zhang, Sheng, Ma, Lin, Sun, Yong, & Mathew, Joseph (2007) Asset health reliability estimation based on condition data. In World Congress on Engineering Asset Management, 11-14 June 2007, Harrogate, England.


This paper presents a method using recursive Bayesian analysis to estimate asset health reliability. The method enables reliability analysis and prediction using degradation condition monitoring data from an individual asset, rather than using failure data from a population of assets. A scheme was devised to assist the implementation of the method in both normal and abnormal zones during the whole asset operation cycle. An experiment on bearing life testing was employed to validate the method.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
