Reliability and safety
are core issues that must be addressed throughout the life cycle of engineering
systems. Reliability and Safety Engineering presents an overview of the basic
concepts, together with simple and practical illustrations.
The authors present
reliability terminology in various engineering fields, viz., electronics
engineering, software engineering, mechanical engineering, structural
engineering and power systems engineering. The book describes the latest
applications in the area of probabilistic safety assessment, such as technical
specification optimization, risk monitoring and risk informed in-service
inspection. Reliability and safety studies must, inevitably, deal with
uncertainty, so the book includes uncertainty propagation methods: Monte Carlo
simulation, fuzzy arithmetic, Dempster-Shafer theory and probability bounds.
Reliability and Safety Engineering also highlights advances in system reliability
and safety assessment including dynamic system modeling and uncertainty
management. Case studies from typical nuclear power plants as well as from
structural, software and electronic systems are also discussed.
Reliability and Safety
Engineering combines discussions of the existing literature on basic concepts
and applications with state-of-the-art methods used in reliability and risk
assessment of engineering systems. It is designed to assist practicing
engineers, students and researchers in the areas of reliability engineering and
