A short introduction to mathematical reliability

A seminar by prof. Andrea Cavallini

  • Date: 02 FEBRUARY 2018  from 10:00 to 1:00

  • Event location: Room 0.6, School of Architecture and Engineering, viale del Risorgimento 2, 40136 Bologna

  • Type: Seminar

Curriculum: Electrical Engineering

The short course will first recall basic concepts of probability theory.

Next, reliability and hazard rate for a single item will be defined, and their mutual relations explained.

Rules to combine single-item reliabilities to derive the reliability of complex systems (series, parallel, partially redundant and bridge) will be presented along with examples.

The use of the Weibull distribution and the statistical estimation of Weibull scale and shape parameters will be discussed.
