Description

The authors of this text seek to clarify mechanical fatigue and design problems by applying probability and computer analysis, and further extending the uses of probability to determine mechanical reliability and achieve optimization. The work solves examples using commercially available software. It is formatted with examples and problems for use in a one-semester graduate course.

Table of Contents

Data reduction; application of probability to mechanical design; optimum design; reliability. Appendices: linearization of the Weibull equation; Monte Carlo simulation; forms of computer optimization routines; mechanical failure rates for non-electric reliability; statistical tables; Los Angeles rainfall 1899-1997.
