The query based learning system for lifetime prediction of metallic components

Ge, Esther (2008) The query based learning system for lifetime prediction of metallic components. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This research project was a step forward in developing an efficient data mining method for estimating the service life of metallic components in Queensland school buildings. The developed method links together the different data sources of service life information and builds the model for a real situation when the users have information on limited inputs only. A practical lifetime prediction system was developed for the industry partners of this project including Queensland Department of Public Works and Queensland Department of Main Roads. The system provides high accuracy in practice where not all inputs are available for querying to the system.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
