Evaluation of the reliability and endurance of structures on the basis of results of accelerated tests of elements

  • É. M. Baskin
Scientific-Technical Section


Using a newly devised method of processing accelerated tests when the distribution functions of breakdowns are unknown, the author obtained equations of the endurance of elements made of steels 15Kh5M and 15Kh5Me. A formula is derived correlating the reliability of a structure with the reliability of a structural element. The article shows that the solution of the problem of the reliability of operation of a structure in the course of the stipulated service life depends on the area of the structure and the required magnitude of the reliability of its troublefree operation.
