Calculates SFPOF by post-processing an explicit Monte Carlo analysis as performed by crackRmc.

Description

crackRmc will calculate SFPOF on the intervals specified for that function, along with the raw results of the simulation. If a different set of flight intervals for SFPOF is desired, this function can be used to do so without re-running the simulation.

Usage

1
crackRcalcSfpofMc(fail.count,insp.intervals,calc.interval,sfpof.min=1e-16)

Arguments

fail.count

Vector of failure counts originating from a crackRmc run

insp.intervals

Vector of the inspection intervals which were used in the run (not cumulative); the subintervals for pooling SFPOF results will avoid overlapping an inspection flight

calc.interval

Length of the interval in flights to use to pool SFPOF estimates

sfpof.min

SFPOF estimates below this value will be raised to this value; this may be zero, though the estimates will not plot on the log-scale in that case

Value

Returns an object of class crackRresults
