How Can Reliability Analysis Help Improve Durability Calculations?

Reliability analysis can help determine the scope of a well-designed durability test program for product validation. But can reliability analysis help the prediction of durability as part of up-front simulation? How can variability and probabilistic scenarios be used to improve the meaningfulness of fatigue life predictions? This workshop discusses the potential benefits and challenges of applying more reliability techniques to durability calculations.
