Abstract:

A recursive type procedure is developed for determining the reliability of trichotomous systems whose components are not necessarily identical and, in particular, for issimilar-channel fuzes. Application of the recursion formulas requires a knowledge of the probabilities of proper function, early function, and dudding of t e various components or fuze channels. The analysis is primarily concerned with parallel systems and series systems however, the resultsARE APPLICABLE TO SERIES-PARALLEL AND PARALLELSERIES SYSTEMS. Author
