Generalized expressions of reliability of series-parallel and parallel-series systems using the Transferable Belief Model


Probability theory is well suited to treat uncertainties when their origin comes only from the natural variability of components’ failure (aleatory uncertainty). On the other hand, if the uncertainties are due to incompleteness, imprecision or ignorance of the reliability data (epistemic uncertainty), several theories can be used. Previous studies have… (More)
