Reliability Models Fitting and Comparative Study of Accumulated Fault Curves of Roller Bearings 2004-01-3290
A comparative study involving failure data of life tests of two bearings types is presented. In a first stage, the statistical distribution more adapted for the modeling of the failure process is selected. Soon after, the parameters of the distribution and the confidence intervals are estimate. The approximationed sample size is supplied in function of an interval with a magnitude and specific confidence level. Tests of hypotheses are used for several significant levels, rejecting or accepting the hypothesis of equality among the adjusted curves of accumulated failure to each bearing.
