Factorial Models

Chapter
Part of the Green Energy and Technology book series (GREEN)

Abstract

In this chapter, factorial modes are applied to the service life prediction of façade coatings, using two approaches: (A) a classic or deterministic approach, in which three scenarios are used in the quantification of the durability factors and sub-factors: a neutral scenario (where all the sub-factors are unitary); a scenario where the durability factors are quantified based on ISO 15686: 2011; and an optimized scenario, resulting from an iterative analysis, minimizing the deviations between the observed values and the values predicted by the factor method; in this approach, the sub-factors are quantified as absolute values; (B) a probabilistic or stochastic approach, where a probability distribution is adjusted to each durability factor; in this approach the estimated service life is also given by a probability distribution.
