INE743 Reliability Evaluation of Engineering Systems

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course covers the concepts and basic background for evaluating the reliability of engineering systems. It covers network modeling and evaluation of simple and complex systems, cut-set method, tie-set method, multi-failure modes. Probability distributions in reliability evaluation and system reliability evaluation using probability distributions are discussed. Also, discrete and continuous Markov chains (reliability evaluation in repairable systems), frequency and duration techniques (concepts, applications to multistate problems, frequency balance approach) and the Monte Carlo simulation, are covered.
