Abstract

In conventional approaches to life prognosis, damage tolerance and fatigue life predictions are obtained based on assumed structural flaws, regardless of whether they actually occur in service. Consequently, a large degree of conservatism is incorporated into structural designs due to these uncertainties. In a real time environment, keeping track of the damage growth in a complex structural component manually is quite difficult and requires automatic damage state estimation. The current research on structural health monitoring (or on-line damage state estimation) techniques offers condition-based damage state prediction and corresponding residual useful life assessment. The real-time damage state information from an on-line state estimation model can be regularly fed to a predictive model to update the residual useful life estimation in the event of a new prevailing situation. This article discusses the use of an adaptive prognosis procedure, which integrates an on-line state estimation algorithm with an off-line predictive algorithm to estimate the condition-based residual useful life of structural hotspots such as a lug joint.
