Risk assessment and risk analysis are now firmly fixed in the
engineer?s lexicon. Every engineering project, contract,
piece of equipment and design requires this discipline by law.
Reliability is the other key element in the mix for smooth running
engineering projects and operations.

In the modern industrial era, economic factors have resulted in
the construction and operation of larger and more complex process
plant. Accidents at these types of plants have led to notorious
incidents such as Flixborough, Bhopal, Chernobyl, and Piper Alpha.
Engineers are working to maximize the benefits of modern processing
technology while reducing the safety risks to acceptable levels.
However, each processing plant has unique problems and each must be
individually assessed to identify, evaluate, and control associated
hazards.


The first edition of Reliability and Risk Assessment was ahead
of its time. The world has caught up with Andrews and Moss and this
fully revised second edition takes the analysis further and brings
a more practical slant with greater and extensive use of case
studies. Reliability and Risk Assessment is for professional
engineers but will also prove invaluable for postgraduate students
involved in reliability and risk assessment research.


 


KEY FEATURES:




  • Rigourous mathmatical descriptions of the most important
    techniques, particularly fault tree analysis and Markov
    methods.



  • Practical examples  of the application of these
    techniques to real-life problems.



  • Self-contained chapters detail methods of reliability and risk
    assessment.



  • Worked examples clarify the text and highlight salient
    points.



  • Three new detailed case studies include: FMECA for a gas
    turbine system; in-service inspection of structural components, and
    a business interruption risk analysis.
