Safety and Reliability Modeling and Its Applications combines work by leading researchers in engineering, statistics and mathematics who provide innovative methods and solutions for this fast-moving field. Safety and reliability analysis is one of the most multidimensional topics in engineering today. Its rapid development has created many opportunities and challenges for both industrialists and academics, while also completely changing the global design and systems engineering environment. As more modeling tasks can now be undertaken within a computer environment using simulation and virtual reality technologies, this book helps readers understand the number and variety of research studies focusing on this important topic. The book addresses these important recent developments, presenting new theoretical issues that were not previously presented in the literature, along with solutions to important practical problems and case studies that illustrate how to apply the methodology.

Key Features

  • Uses case studies from industry practice to explain innovative solutions to real world safety and reliability problems
  • Addresses the full interdisciplinary range of topics that influence this complex field
  • Provides brief introductions to important concepts, including stochastic reliability and Bayesian methods


Students and researchers of engineering and applied maths interested in safety and reliability engineering. Advanced engineers working in industries including systems engineering, industrial engineering, and process engineering
