This paper explores the value of approximate methods of a specific type, as an efficient aid to performing residual life assessments, particularly when input data are incomplete. These methods, referred to as “robust” have the desirable attributes of providing satisfactory answers using less-than-perfect input, and being very economical in time of execution. Some examples of robust methods, which have been used successfully in high temperature design and fracture evaluations, are presented.
