Reliability Engineering: Theory and Practice - PDF Free DownloadReliability theory is a multidisciplinary science aimed at developing complex systems that are resistant to failures. Reliability engineering has emerged as a main field not only for scientists and researchers, but also for engineers and industrial managers. This book covers the recent developments in reliability engineering. It presents new theoretical issues that were not previously published, as well as the solutions of practical problems and case studies illustrating the applications methodology. This book is written by a number of leading scientists, analysts, mathematicians, statisticians, and engineers who have been working on the front end of reliability science and engineering.
Reliability Engineering: Theory and Practice
This 5th edition differs from the 4th one for some refinements and extensions mainly on investigation and test of complex repairable systems. For phased-mission systems a new approach is given for both reliability and availability Section 6. Effects of common cause failures CCF are carefully investigated for a 1-out-of-2 redundancy 6. Petri nets and dynamic FTA are introduced as alternative investigation methods for repairable systems 6. Approximate expressions are further developed. An unified approach for availability estimation und demonstration is given for exponentially and Erlangian distributed failure-free and repair times 7.
