About this book

Units or systems can fail when they suffer shock and when the total damage exceeds a failure level. Shock and damage models describe catastrophic and degradation failures of units or systems and these reliability models are analyzed using the theory of stochastic processes.

Shock and Damage Models in Reliability Theory is the first book to describe the reliability properties and maintenance policies associated with shock and damage models. The author is a leading researcher in this field with over thirty years’ experience. The book introduces stochastic processes before surveying current developments in shock and damage models. The reliability quantities of each model are explained and their optimization problems are discussed analytically. The maintenance policies of these models are explored in terms of maintenance theory and reliability theory and practical applications of all of these models are revealed with case studies.

Reliability engineers and managers engaged in maintenance work will find Shock and Damage Models in Reliability Theory a comprehensive reference. As a detailed treatment of this specific area, this book will also be of interest to advanced undergraduate and graduate students and researchers who are studying reliability engineering and applied stochastic processes.

Springer Series in Reliability Engineering publishes high-quality books in important areas of current theoretical research and development in reliability, and in areas that bridge the gap between theory and application in areas of interest to practitioners in industry, laboratories, business, and government.

About the authors

Toshio Nakagawa is a Professor of Engineering at Aichi Institute of Technology, Japan. He is considered the world leader in maintenance reliability engineering and has worked in this area for thirty years. He has published more than a hundred research papers mainly on the subject of maintenance and reliability theory.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book describes various models of shock and damage in reliability theory, and derives the optimal policies for such models. … covers a large number of shock and damage models, and opens new areas of research. It can be found to be useful to graduate students and researchers in reliability theory." (Moshe Shaked, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1144, 2008)
