About this book

The book deals with analysis of reliability of mechanical systems, structures and devices. It addresses design for reliability, as well as quality assurance and quality control in mechanical manufacturing. This book is unique and non-classical, and reliability is defined non-probalistically as robustness to uncertainty. Convex-set models of uncertainty are described and used, rather than probabilistic models. This approach is particularly suited to the limited information typically available about uncertainties of complex mechanical systems. Static as well as dynamic systems, linear processes such as elastic vibration, and non-linear processes like damage evolution and fatigue failure are studied. Robust reliability is applied to evaluating the reliability of mathematical and convex models of uncertainty are combined in a hybrid reliability analysis applicable in those situations where prior information supports both types of uncertainty models. In short, a widely-applicable theory is developed through general discussion and many examples. Fachgebiet: Mechanical Engineering Zielgruppe: Research and Development
