The Handbook of Reliability, Maintenance, and System Safety through Mathematical Modeling discusses the many factors affect reliability and performance, including engineering design, materials, manufacturing, operations, maintenance, and many more. Reliability is one of the fundamental criteria in engineering systems design, with maintenance serving as a way to support reliability throughout a system’s life. Addressing these issues requires information, modeling, analysis and testing. Different techniques are proposed and implemented to help readers analyze various behavior measures (in terms of the functioning and performance) of systems.

Key Features

  • Enables mathematicians to convert any process or system into a model that can be analyzed through a specific technique
  • Examines reliability and mathematical modeling in a variety of disciplines, unlike competitors which typically examine only one
  • Includes a table of contents with simple to complex examples, starting with basic models and then refining modeling approaches step-by-step


Undergraduates and graduate students worldwide in mathematics working on applications of mathematics to engineering problems; researchers, professionals, and scientists worldwide applying mathematics to engineering problems
