POSSIBILITY LOGIC APPLIED TO PRESSURE VESSEL RESIDUAL LIFETIME PREDICTION
The adequacy is discussed of a probability measure to deal with the different types of uncertainty affecting any pressure vessel lifetime prediction. A more comprehensive framework derived from the fuzzy set theory and including as particular case possibility and probability measures is considered. With reference to the most critical step of lifetime assessment (the ND inspection), the paper compares the results, obtained adopting a possibility measure or a probability measure, in the representation models, fault tree - event tree, and in the decision models.
