Teaching method

The first part of the classes is dedicated to the introduction and discussion of theoretical contents, accompanied by application examples that allow a better learning of the theoretical concepts. Then, these concepts are demonstrated and used in specific problem-solving exercises.

Evaluation method

The Curricular Unit will be evaluated through the completion of 1 work and 1 test.

Subject matter

1-Introduction to Reliability: Engineering Basic Concepts, Applications Areas, Data Analysis Reliability of Components and Independent Component Systems Repairable Systems and Models for Repairable Systems.

2-Probability Distributions in Reliability: Statistical Analysis of Failure (Comparison of Reliability Functions), Negative Exponential Distribution, and Poisson Distribution, Normal Distribution, Lognormal distribution, Weibull distribution and Graphical Estimation of Parameters.

3-Reliability of Independent Component Systems: Series-connected Systems, Redundant Systems and Complex Systems

4-Repairable Systems: Failure Analysis, Systems with Constant ROCOF, MTBF Estimation, Confidence Intervals for Systems with Constant ROCOF, Reliability Assurance, Sequential Test and Systems with Descending ROCOF (Crow Model).
