An Introduction to the Basics of Reliability and Risk by Enrico Zio

By Enrico Zio

The need of craftsmanship for tackling the complex and multidisciplinary questions of safety and threat has slowly permeated into all engineering purposes in order that threat research and administration has won a appropriate function, either as a device in aid of plant layout and as an vital potential for emergency making plans in unintended occasions. This involves the purchase of applicable reliability modeling and probability research instruments to enrich the elemental and particular engineering wisdom for the technological quarter of program. aimed toward offering an natural view of the topic, this booklet presents an advent to the imperative options and concerns concerning the security of recent commercial actions. It additionally illustrates the classical innovations for reliability research and probability evaluate utilized in present perform.

4 19 HAZard and Operability analysis (HAZOP) HAZOP is a qualitative methodology which combines deductive aspects (search for causes) and inductive aspects (consequence analysis) with the objective of identifying the initiating events of undesired accident sequences. Contrary to FMEA, which is mainly based on the structuralhardware aspects of the system, HAZOP looks at the processes which are undergoing in the plant. Indeed, the method, initially developed for the chemical process industry, proceeds through the compilation of Tables (such as Table 3 .

Hence, we accept the following axiom as a primitive concept which does not need to be proven: Uncertain events can be compared It represents a concept very similar to that of the value of objects and goods which need to be compared for the purpose of exchanging them. In this latter case at one point in history, the monetary scale was introduced as an absolute scale against which to compare different goods with respect to their values. Similarly, it is necessary to introduce a measure for comparing uncertain events.

E. 1 [l] Strong wind at a particular site may come from any direction between due east (0 = 0') and due north (0 = 90O). All values of wind speed Vare possible. 1. 2.
