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

Development of a Design Procedure for Aeronautical Structures Based on Reliability

F. Javidrad; F. Dabirian

Volume 7, Issue 1 , March 2010, , Pages 59-67

  In this paper, an approach to aeronautical structural design based on reliability analysis is presented. In this way, the concept of level of safety is discussed and methods of its calculation using statistical data are described. Based on the concept of level of safety, a design procedure is proposed. ...  Read More
