Sensitivities in structural maintenance planning. M.H. Faber, I.B. Kroon and J.D. Sorensen. Reliability Engng. System Safety, March 1996, 51(3), 317--329.

Consideration is given to optimal inspection and maintenance planning on the basis of the classical description theory and the modern reliability theory. Various simplifications with reference to this description are presented which provide formulations that are more suitable for practical applications. An example is presented illustrating a simplified inspection and maintenance planning analysis for a welded tubular joint in a jacket-type offshore structure. 23 refs.
