Exact Failure Frequency Calculations for Extended Systems


This paper shows how the steady-state availability and failure frequency can be calculated in a single pass for very large systems, when the availability is expressed as a product of matrices. We apply the general procedure to k-out-of-n:G and linear consecutive k-out-of-n:F systems, and to a simple ladder network in which each edge and node may fail. We… (More)
