Abstract:

The work carried out during the 198485 contract year is divided into two parts. First, three classes of component dependency models have been successfully incorporated into the Markov Monte Carlo formulation standby systems, shared load systems and shared repair crews. These models have been implemented in a computer code and used for the analysis of a number of complex systems. Second, the investigation of the Monte Carlo simulation of time-dependent failure was begun. Two different sampling techniques were formulated, and evaluation is continuing into the 198586 contract period. Author
