About this item
Edgar Bradley's Reliability Engineering: A Life-Cycle Approach is based on the author's 50 years of experience in industry and academics, covering foundational reliability statistics, numerous topics not covered in other texts, plus case studies of plants in mid-life. These cases are open ended, as in real life, with not all the necessary information available, and the need for intelligent calculations to derive probable answers. Worked examples and problems are included, emphasizing students' analysis and problem-solving skills. This specific structure of the book makes it suitable for both graduate students and practicing reliability and maintenance engineers.
