Fault tree analysis is an important technique in determining the safety and dependability of complex systems. Fault trees are used as a major tool in the study of system safety as well as in reliability and availability studies. The basic methods – construction, logical analysis, probability evaluation and influence study – are described in this book. The following extensions of fault trees: non-coherent fault trees, fault trees with delay and multi-performance fault trees are explained. Classic algorithms for fault tree analysis are presented, as well as more recent algorithms based on binary decision diagrams (BDD). 1. Systems with a single component. 2. Multi-component systems. 3. Fault tree construction. 4. Minimal sets. 5. Probabilistic evaluation. 6. Influence study. 7. Modules – phases – common modes. 8. Extensions: non-coherent fault trees – with delay – multi-performance. 9. Binary decision diagrams. 10. Stochastic simulation of fault trees. Exercises. Appendices: BDD algorithms for fault trees; Fault trees of European benchmark; Probability results. Nikolaos Limnios is a Professor at the University of Technology, Compiègne, France. His research includes reliability, applied stochastic processes and statistics. He has written and edited many books in the reliability field.
