Fatigue analysis framework for fleet management using bayesian networks

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    A 'top-down' fatigue analysis framework is introduced, where the framework allows the fleet manager to make 'what-if' analyses of the performance of alternative flight task mixes or flight programs. The required measurement data is any fatigue life measures obtained from fatigue-monitoring systems. These are used as evidence in Bayesian inference on fatigue damage parameters needed for higher-level analyses. The framework can be used to assess feasibility and/or rank flight and maintenance programs designed during the flight operations planning phase.
