By A. Saiz de Bustamante (auth.), A. G. Colombo, A. Saiz de Bustamante (eds.)

This booklet offers types and strategies for platforms reliability overview, human reliability research and uncertainty administration. It comprises fourteen contributions that are grouped into 3 sections. part 1 offers with uncomplicated reliability equipment and purposes. The papers via Saiz de Bustamante and Perlado introduce the stochastic approaches and the Monte Carlo technique, respectively. Sanz Fermandez de Cordoba and Gonzales speak about vital useful implications of using reliability tools. the previous refers back to the aerospace undefined. The latter considers nuclear strength crops. consultation 2 provides a few advances in platforms reliability thoughts. The paper by way of Contini and Poucet illustrates the mathematical research of fault timber and occasion timber. It contains a dialogue at the logical research of non-coherent fault bushes and concerns at the significant measures of criticality and value of an element. The paper through Babbio is dedicated to Petri nets. First, the formalism of this really new strategy is given. Then, stochastic Petri nets are brought as a device to explain the behaviour of platforms in time. ultimately, through a few absolutely constructed examples, it really is proven how this technique can be utilized to symbolize and evaluation complicated stochastic structures. Limnios introduces the thought of failure hold up platforms and offers the lifetime constitution for the evaluate of reliability measures. A reservoir is studied for instance of a failure hold up system.

L and A have equal improvement on availability. Written in the form (17), we have an alternative way of expressing the most effective way of improving availability: The most effective way to improve availability is to act over the parameter for which the possible improvement represents a large percentage of change in the parameter current value. 2. MULTI SYSTEM MODEL An important part of the complexity of many systems is the redundancies included in their design. Those redundancies are in general built to insure the availability of one or more of the redundant parts as a mean to keep the complete system available.

Alonso et al. • m). This response vector depends on a set of input parameter Pi (i= 1,2, . m) which are elements of the vector p, constituting the random variables. This data vector p is assumed to be subject to measuring or other uncertainties p = Po + Sp where Po is the mean value and the uncertainty 8p is characterized by its varIance-covariance matrix C = <8p 8pT> where the brackets <... > mean a statistical average. Because of the finite sample size, an uncertainty 8s i is introduced, ri = fi (p(O) + 8p) + 8Si Expanding into Taylor series the function fi and performing a simple algebra, a general expresion for the uncertainty of the response can be obtained where <8r8rT>: total uncertainty matrix of a Monte Carlo game, combining input data uncertainties with statistical deviations resulting from finite sampling <8p8pT>: uncertainty matrix of the input data <8s8sT>: uncertainty matrix of the Monte Carlo scores S = :sensitivity matrix of calculated responses.

The numerical procedure starts choosing from the pdf's fi (8i) the values of t11, t21, ... t51 which correspond to the first trial of the time to failure for each component. The first value of the estimator t1 will be The full sample of t should be (t 1, t2, ... tN) corresponding to the extent N of the number of tr ials. According with the theory of Monte Carlo method, the estimate of t (time to failure of the system) can be expressed by 1 E(8) "" - N L t. - SYSTEM AVAILABILITY BY MONTE CARLO the random variable which represents the estimator of t.
