Abstract:

For those environmental stresses for which the ideas of Lusser a study of methods of achieving reliability of guided missiles apply, a method of estimating the reliability of an assemblage of components is suggested. It is assumed that only one test to failure can be made for each of the different components. It is shown that a simplified and approximate analysis can be performed which yields a lower limit on reliability when the one test is interpreted in a given way and one application of engineering judgement is made. The consequences of an error in judgement are readily apparent from the formulas presented and can thus be allowed for. Author
