The Universal Generating Function in Reliability Analysis and Optimization

The Universal Generating Function in Reliability Analysis and Optimization

Livres

Description

Many real-world systems in engineering are composed of multi-state components that have different performance levels and several failure modes. These have effects on the entire system’s performance.


Most books on reliability theory are devoted to traditional binary models that only allow a system either to function perfectly or fail completely.


The Universal Generating Function in Reliability Analysis and Optimization is the first book that gives a comprehensive description of the universal generating function technique and its applications in both binary and multi-state system reliability analysis.


Features:



  • an introduction to the basic tools used in multi-state system reliability and optimisation;

  • applications of the universal generating function in the most widely used multi-state systems;

  • several examples of how the universal generating function can be adapted to different systems in mechanical, industrial and software engineering

The Universal Generating Function in Reliability Analysis and Optimization will be of value to all those interested in multi-state systems in industrial, electrical and nuclear engineering.
