... can be performed at component-level or system-level. The data at these two levels require different amount of resources to collect and carry different values of information for system reliability assessment. Even though component-level tests are cheap to perform, they cannot account...

... to a time-invariant system reliability problem in the second-stage failure processes decomposition. Then, the kernel density estimation (KDE) method is finally employed for the system reliability evaluation. Several examples are used to verify the effectiveness of the proposed method to demonstrate its...

... related to the bounds of the limit-state function over the uncertainty domain. In the system reliability analysis, as the reliability domain varies, the limit-state bounds can generally behave a regular variation, namely, when the reliability domain expands its lower bound will not become larger while its...

...Mark McDonald; Sankaran Mahadevan Engineering design problems frequently involve both discrete and continuous random and design variables, and system reliability may depend on the union or intersection of multiple limit states. Solving reliability-based design optimization (RBDO) problems, where...

..., the system reliability is exactly equal to the required system reliability of 0.001. The algorithm used here is able to satisfy the system reliability constraint exactly as it is evaluated in each step of the optimization algorithm. The results show that at optimality, the unit vector pointing...
