  • Summarizes the basic concepts together with simple and practical illustrations; latest advances in reliability and safety engineering including dynamic risk assessment and uncertainty management and several practical case studies
  • Provides assistance to practicing engineers, students and researchers in the area of reliability engineering and risk analysis/safety assessment by providing a quickly accessible reference to the basics, latest advances and terminology in various engineering fields
  • Includes new chapters on Dynamic Risk/Safety Assessment, Maintenance of Ship Borne Machinery and Reliability Studies in non-nuclear industries and additional material to expand subject coverage
Reliability and safety are core issues that must be addressed throughout the life cycle of engineering systems. Reliability and Safety Engineering presents an overview of the basic concepts, together with simple and practical illustrations.
 The authors present reliability terminology in various engineering fields, viz.,electronics engineering, software engineering, mechanical engineering, structural engineering and power systems engineering.
The book describes the latest applications in the area of probabilistic safety assessment, such as technical specification optimization, risk monitoring and risk informed in-service inspection. Reliability and safety studies must, inevitably, deal with uncertainty, so the book includes uncertainty propagation methods: Monte Carlo simulation, fuzzy arithmetic, Dempster-Shafer theory and probability bounds.
 Reliability and Safety Engineering also highlights advances in system reliability and safety assessment including dynamic system modeling and uncertainty management. Case studies from typical nuclear power plants, as well as from structural, software, and electronic systems are also discussed.
 Reliability and Safety Engineering combines discussions of the existing literature on basic concepts and applications with state-of-the-art methods used in reliability and risk assessment of engineering systems. It is designed to assist practicing engineers, students and researchers in the areas of reliability engineering and risk analysis.
