Failure distributions of aircraft components

Mentor: Associate Professor Bill Blyth, University of Melbourne
Intern: Dr. Con Lozanovski, , University of Melbourne
Industry Partner: DSTO
Project Duration: December 2008 to February 2009

Defence equipment suppliers routinely provide estimates of the life span of the material and equipment they supply. Initial estimates are often very conservative but they can be updated once equipment has been in operation for some time. This project will examine a range of techniques that may be used to estimate failure distributions of low cycle aircraft components.
