Reliability of mechanical engineering systems

Reliability is a measure of a products quality in the time domain. The increasing complexity of technical products demands for sophisticated reliability concepts. In this course the fundamentals of system reliability theory and the according tools to evaluate the availability of complex systems are discussed.

The course consists of the following topics

  • Fundamentals of system reliability
  • Boolean system theory
  • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
  • Redundancy concepts
  • Repairable systems
  • Markov theory
  • Reliability of electronic systems
  • Reliability of smart structural systems
  • Maintanance and reliability management
  • Quality management
