Remaining life prediction

If so, for how long?
Remaining life prediction

For many components, time or cycle dependent degradation processes – such as corrosion, fatigue and creep – cause progressive deterioration that eventually renders the equipment unsuitable for continued service.

An understanding of these mechanisms together with a knowledge of the operating conditions allows prediction of the life remaining.

For efficiency and economy, a phased-approach is adopted.
