Explicit and implicit methods for probabilistic common-cause failure analysis
TLDR
The occurrence of a probabilistic common-cause failure (PCCF) in a system results in failures of multiple system components with different probabilities. Expand

Competing failure analysis in phased-mission systems with functional dependence in one of phases
TLDR
This paper proposes an algorithm for the reliability analysis of non-repairable phased-mission systems (PMS) subject to competing failure propagation and isolation effects due to the competition between the failure isolation and failure propagation effects. Expand

A fast approximation method for reliability analysis of cold-standby systems
TLDR
An approximation model, which is based on the central limit theorem, is presented for the reliability analysis of binary cold-standby systems with arbitrary time-to-failure distributions. Expand

Reliability analysis of multi-trigger binary systems subject to competing failures
TLDR
This paper suggests two combinatorial and analytical algorithms for the reliability analysis of multi-trigger binary systems subject to competing failure propagation and failure isolation effects resulting from a competition in the time domain between the failure isolation and failure propagation effects.

Communication Reliability Analysis of Wireless Sensor Networks Using Phased-Mission Model
TLDR
In this paper, we advance the state-of-the-art by proposing a phased-mission framework to analyze the communication reliability of WSNs considering both infrastructure communication and application communication, as well as K coverage requirements. Expand
