### Fracture trace length and number distributions from

[34] The bias involved in estimating fracture density can be determined from the formulae in Figure 8. Figure 14 shows the ratio of the mean density of observed fracture traces to the actual density of fracture traces plotted against the power law exponent for a range of standardized window heights,, which expresses the mean height as a multiple of the lower truncation limit, t 0 .

### Estimates of brittle fracture probability using reactor

1978/8/1In this paper we present a method for estimating the brittle fracture probability using the HSST and vessel-specific data. The method is general enough so that data from all surveillance capsules removed from a vessel to date can be included for the purpose of updating estimates of brittle rupture probability at the instances of scheduled shutdowns.

Therefore, when estimating the probability of implant loosening, the estimated probability of death represents the probability of dying before the implant fails. There are many situations in orthopaedics in which competing risks are likely and for which the cumulative incidence estimator should be considered.

2013/8/6For comparison, acceptable annual failure probabilities in the nuclear industry are typically in the order of or 10-6 or better. An estimation on the frequency of operations that may result in a blowout in Europe can be made by looking at their respective frequencies per well year in the SINTEF database, and scaling these proportions by the number of active wells in Europe (see table below).

Based on fracture mechanics concepts, a limit state function can be defined and the failure probability evaluated. Then, some safety factors to be used in a deterministic approach can be evaluated to insure a certain reliability level (Ardillon and al. (1998)).
