A Bayesian probabilistic methodology is presented for updating the assessment of the lifetime reliability of a structure based on dynamic test data. Uncertainties from modeling errors are treated in addition to the uncertain excitation the structure will experience during the remainder of its lifetime. Both identifiable and unidentifiable models can be handled.
