Accelerated Life Testing of Motorettes

Description

The motors data frame has 40 rows and 3 columns. It describes an accelerated life test at each of four temperatures of 10 motorettes, and has rather discrete times.

Usage

motors

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

temp
the temperature (degrees C) of the test
time
the time in hours to failure or censoring at 8064 hours (= 336 days).
cens
an indicator variable for death

Examples

library(survival)
plot(survfit(Surv(time, cens) ~ factor(temp), motors), conf.int = FALSE)
# fit Weibull model
motor.wei <- survreg(Surv(time, cens) ~ temp, motors)
summary(motor.wei)
# and predict at 130C
unlist(predict(motor.wei, data.frame(temp=130), se.fit = TRUE))

motor.cox <- coxph(Surv(time, cens) ~ temp, motors)
summary(motor.cox)
# predict at temperature 200
plot(survfit(motor.cox, newdata = data.frame(temp=200),
     conf.type = "log-log"))
summary( survfit(motor.cox, newdata = data.frame(temp=130)) )
