This book is a methodological approach to the goal-based safety design procedure that will soon be an international requirement. This is the first single volume book to describe how to satisfy safety goals by modern reliability engineering. Its focus is on the quantitative aspects of the international standards using a methodological approach. Case studies illustrate the methodologies presented.
This book describes how to satisfy safety goals by modern reliability engineering. It focuses on the quantitative aspects of the international standards using a methodological approach. All presented methodologies are illustrated through the use of case studies. The book discusses accident statistics and safety goals and describes abnormal event enumeration for the target system. Coverage also develops risk reduction mechanisms and discusses probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) models. In addition, the book presents conventional materials for basic event quantification, shows how to calculate safety criteria from the PRA models, evaluates uncertainties of point estimates of safety criteria, and considers how external event quantification can expand the scope of PRA.
