Fit_Exponential_Power_Exponential
(failures, failure_stress_1, failure_stress_2, right_censored=None, right_censored_stress_1=None, right_censored_stress_2=None, use_level_stress=None, CI=0.95, optimizer=None, show_probability_plot=True, show_life_stress_plot=True, print_results=True)¶ This function will Fit the Exponential_Power_Exponential lifestress model to the data provided. Please see the online documentation for the equations of this model.
This model is most appropriate to model a lifestress relationship with thermal and nonthermal stresses. It is essential that you ensure your thermal stress is stress_1 (as it will be modeled by the Exponential) and your nonthermal stress is stress_2 (as it will be modeled by the Power). Also ensure that your temperature data are in Kelvin.
Parameters:  failures (array, list) – The failure data.
 failure_stress_1 (array, list) – The corresponding stress 1 (thermal stress) at which each failure occurred. This must match the length of failures as each failure is tied to a failure stress.
 failure_stress_2 (array, list) – The corresponding stress 2 (nonthermal stress) at which each failure occurred. This must match the length of failures as each failure is tied to a failure stress.
 right_censored (array, list, optional) – The right censored failure times. Optional input.
 right_censored_stress_1 (array, list, optional) – The corresponding stress 1 (thermal stress) at which each right_censored data point was obtained. This must match the length of right_censored as each right_censored value is tied to a right_censored stress. Conditionally optional input. This must be provided if right_censored is provided.
 right_censored_stress_2 (array, list, optional) – The corresponding stress 1 (nonthermal stress) at which each right_censored data point was obtained. This must match the length of right_censored as each right_censored value is tied to a right_censored stress. Conditionally optional input. This must be provided if right_censored is provided.
 use_level_stress (array, list optional) – A two element list or array of the use level stresses in the form [stress_1, stress_2] at which you want to know the mean life. Optional input.
 print_results (bool, optional) – True/False. Default is True. Prints the results to the console.
 show_probability_plot (bool, object, optional) – True/False. Default is True. Provides a probability plot of the fitted ALT model. If an axes object is passed it will be used.
 show_life_stress_plot (bool, str, object, optional) – If True the lifestress plot will be shown. To hide the lifestress plot use False. To swap the axes and show a stresslife plot use ‘swap’. If an axes handle is passed it will be used. Default is True.
 CI (float, optional) – Confidence interval for estimating confidence limits on parameters. Must be between 0 and 1. Default is 0.95 for 95% CI.
 optimizer (str, optional) – The optimization algorithm used to find the solution. Must be either ‘TNC’, ‘LBFGSB’, ‘neldermead’, or ‘powell’. Specifying the optimizer will result in that optimizer being used. To use all of these specify ‘best’ and the best result will be returned. The default behaviour is to try each optimizer in order (‘TNC’, ‘LBFGSB’, ‘neldermead’, and ‘powell’) and stop once one of the optimizers finds a solution. If the optimizer fails, the initial guess will be returned. For more detail see the documentation.
