Description

As mechanisms grow in size and complexity, safety and reliability become of paramount importance. Such complexity makes the assessment of reliability and safety to particularly difficult. Kolowrocki delivers the complete elaboration of the asymptotic approach to reliability evaluation. The text is mathematical, but applications of these methods cover wide range of engineering fields: from communication networks and microelectronic devices to transportation systems, piping transportation of water, gas, oil and various chemical substances.

Key Features

  • Only reference with on asymptotic approach to reliability currently on the market
  • Suitable for use as a postgraduate course book
  • Contains many new theoretical results

Readership

Reliability researchers, postgraduates in reliability and safety, reliability research and development in industry

Table of Contents

Basic Notions, Two-State Systems, Multi-State Systems, Reliability Of Large Two-State Systems, Reliability Of Large Multi-State Systems, Reliability Evaluation Of Port And Shipyard Transportation Systems, Reliability Of Large Multi-State Exponential Systems, Related And Open Problems, Summary
