In fault tree analysis, the uncertainties in the failure probability and/or failure rate of system components or basic events can be propagated to find the uncertainty in the overall system failure probability. The conventional approach is Monte-Carlo simulation by assuming a probability distribution for the failure probability. In addition, a new methodology based on fuzzy set theory is also being used in the fault tree analysis for quantifying the basic event uncertainty and for propagatingâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
