Reliability in Engineering Design / Edition 1

Grasp the basics of reliability techniques in engineering design

With an emphasis on the problem of quantifying reliability in product design and testing, Reliability in Engineering Design provides a complete overview of the topic. Beginning with an introduction to reliability, the text then proceeds in a logical manner through related, relevant topics. Discussed at length are terms and measures used in reliability testing, static reliability models, probabilistic approaches to design reliability, analysis of complex systems, and obtaining reliability estimates from test data. To provide a connection between theory and practice, simple design examples are utilized to fully describe and illustrate design reliability methodologies, making the text an excellent resource for both experienced engineers and those new to these reliability techniques.
