Conclusions Many systems can be regarded as flow networks whose arcs have discrete and multi-valued random capacities. The probability of the maximum flow at each various level and the reliability of such a flow network can be calculated in terms of K-lattices which are generated from each subset of the family of all MCs (minimal cutsets). However the size of such a family 2m 1 (m = number of MCs) grows exponentially with m. Such a flow network can be considered as a multistate system with… CONTINUE READING
