Structural Lifecycle Management of Ships Under Uncertainty
Successful lifecycle management of ships is best conducted through an integrated lifecycle framework that accounts for uncertainties. These uncertainties are inherently present in the loading conditions, deteriorating mechanisms, inspection and maintenance activities, as well as in the models adopted to identify the structural resistance of ships. This paper presents a brief overview on the recent research work performed at Lehigh University in the field of lifecycle management of naval vessels under uncertainty. The discussed topics include probabilistic performance assessment under different operational conditions, inspection and monitoring planning, and maintenance optimization. Additionally, the paper covers some of the challenges and research areas that need further development to improve the capabilities of the proposed approach.
