Fundamentals of Reliability Engineering
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: MATH141.
This course provides a general survey of the techniques of reliability engineering with a focus on quantitative methods. Topics covered include: failure modes and effects analysis, mathematical definition of reliability, probabilistic models to represent failure phenomena, statistical life models for non-repairable components, reliability data analysis, and system reliability models including fault trees, event trees. Students will learn how to apply these techniques to problems related to engineering systems, with example cases for process plants, energy systems and infrastructure.
