Volume 8, Issue 2 , September 2011, , Pages 107-117

  This paper presents an extension of Bayesian networks (BN) applied to reliability analysis of an open gas generator cycle Liquid propellant engine (OGLE) of launch vehicles. There are several methods for system reliability analysis such as RBD, FTA, FMEA, Markov Chains, and etc. But for complex systems ...  Read More

Analysis of a solid state wave gyroscope with thin shell cylindrical resonator and calculation of its conversion factor

Saeid Irani; M. Lashgari

Volume 5, Issue 4 , December 2008, , Pages 167-174

  In this work the equations of motion of a Solid State Wave Gyroscope (SWG) with rotary thin cylindrical shell resonator is analyzed using the shell and plates elasticity theory. The gyroscope conversion factor found in this analytical study corresponds with the experimental results obtained and listed ...  Read More
