  • Patent number: 9792555
    Abstract: A method for probabilistic fatigue life prediction using nondestructive testing data considering uncertainties from nondestructive examination (NDE) data and fatigue model parameters. The method utilizes uncertainty quantification models for detection, sizing, fatigue model parameters and inputs. A probability of detection model is developed based on a log-linear model coupling an actual flaw size with a nondestructive examination (NDE) reported size. A distribution of the actual flaw size is derived for both NDE data without flaw indications and NDE data with flaw indications by using probabilistic modeling and Bayes theorem. A turbine rotor example with real world NDE inspection data is presented to demonstrate the overall methodology.

  • Patent number: 9541530
    Abstract: A method of fatigue life prediction including: calculating a critical crack size of an object of interest; identifying a first flaw in ultrasound data of the object of interest; determining that the first flaw interacts with a second flaw, the first flaw is to be merged with the second flaw, or the first flaw is isolated; calculating an initial crack size based on the determination; and calculating an increase in the initial crack size due to fatigue and creep to determine a number of load cycles until the initial crack size reaches the critical crack size.

  • Publication number: 20130076982
    Abstract: A television (TV) system and a booting method thereof are provided. In the present invention, by additionally adding a self-setting booting item into an OSD (on-screen display) menu provided by the TV system, a plurality of booting modes related to the TV system is self-defined by a user under the self-setting booting item. Accordingly, the TV system performs a booting procedure in response to the self-defined and selected booting mode. Since the booting mode of the TV system can be self-defined/selected by the user, the modules corresponding to functions that are not need by the user in the TV system can be turned off/disabled, which avails saving power and improving a booting speed of the TV system, and even increasing practicability of the TV system.
