The article “Stochastic Modeling for Pavement Warranty Cost Estimation” (J. of Constr. Engr. and Mgmnt., 2009: 352–359) proposes the following model for the distribution of Y = time to pavement failure. Let \(\displaystyle{X}_{{{1}}}\) be the time to failure due to rutting, and \(\displaystyle{X}_{{{2}}}\) be the time to failure due to transverse cracking, these two rvs are assumed independent. Then \(\displaystyle{Y}=\min{\left({X}_{{{1}}},{X}_{{{2}}}\right)}\). The probability of failure due to either one of these distress modes is assumed to be an increasing function of time t. After making certain distributional assumptions, the following form of the cdf for each mode is obtained: \(\displaystyle\Phi{\left[\frac{{{a}+{b}{t}}}{{\left({c}+{\left.{d}{t}\right.}+{e}{t}^{{{2}}}\right)}^{{\frac{{1}}{{2}}}}}\right]}\) where \(\Uparrow \Phi\) is the standard normal cdf. Values of the five parameters a, b, c, d, and e are -25.49, 1.15, 4.45, -1.78, and .171 for cracking and -21.27, .0325, .972, -.00028, and .00022 for rutting. Determine the probability of pavement failure within \(\displaystyle{t}={5}\) years and also \(\displaystyle{t}={10}\) years.

Step 1 Cracking Φ((a+bt)(c+df+et2))12
a=25.49
b=1.15
c=4.45
d=1.78
e=0.171 Determine the corresponding probability using the normal probability table. t=5Φ(a+bt(c+dt+et2)12)
=Φ(25.49+1.15(5)(4.45+(1.78)(5)+0.171(5)2)12)
=Φ(19.74(0.175)12) =Underfined t=10Φ(a+bt(c+dt+et2)12)
=Φ(25.49+1.15(10)(4.45+(1.78)(10)+0.171(10)2)12)
=Φ(7.22)
0 Note that the probability is undefined when t=5, because the expression under the square root (1/2) is negative and the square root of a negative number doesn't exist. Step 2 Cracking Φ(a+bt(c+dt+et2)12)
a=21.27
b=0.0325
c=0.972
d=0.00028
e=0.00022 Determine the corresponding probability using the normal probability y table. Φ(x) is approximately when x is a value smaller than all z-scores in the table t=5 Φ(a+bt(c+dt+et2)12)
=Φ(21.27+0.0325(5)(0.972+(0.00028)(5)+0.00022(5)2)12}
=Φ(21.36)
0

Aurora is planning to participate in an event at her school's field day that requires her to complete tasks at various stations in the fastest time possible. To prepare for the event, she is practicing and keeping track of her time to complete each station. The x-coordinate is the station number, and the y-coordinate is the time in minutes since the start of the race that she completed the task. (1,3),(2,6),(3,12),(4,24)
Part A: Is this data modeling an algebraic sequence or a geometric sequence? Explain your answer.
Part B: Use a recursive formula to determine the time she will complete station 5.
Part C: Use an explicit formula to find the time she will complete the 9th station.

Confidence of a failure
A joint of steel pipe (casing) has a 1% failure rate. 400 joints of casing are in a typical well. How may wells can I drill or joints can I run, before I am 90% confident of having at least one casing failure? You can leave out the well to simplify the problem: Casing has a 1% failure rate. How many joints of casing can I have before I am 90% confident in having a failure? Thanks for re teaching me. I think it is called gambler's ruin.
