Chapter 16: Applications to Reliability and Life Testing¶

Example, Page-488¶

In :
# Variable declaration
rel = 0.970
n = 5

# Calculation
from scipy import *
from pylab import *

# Result
print "Riliability of 5 component system: ",round(rel**5,3)
print "Riliability of 10 component system: ",round(rel**10,3)
Riliability of 5 component system:  0.859
Riliability of 10 component system:  0.737

Example, page-489¶

In :
# Variable declaration
a1 = 0.70
a2 = 0.75

# Calculation
from scipy import *
from pylab import *

a1 = 1-pow((1-a1),3)
a2 = 1-pow((1-a2),2)

riliability = (0.95)*(0.99)*(a1)*(a2)*(0.90)

# Result
print "Riliability: ",round(riliability,3)
Riliability:  0.772

Example, page-495¶

In :
# Variable declaration
n = 50   # Units
r = 10   # Failed units
v = 20   # Degrees of freedom

# Calculation
from scipy import *
from pylab import *

l = [65,110,380,420,505,580,650,840,910,950]

T = sum(l)+(50-10)*950
U = T/10

X_sq_thr = 31.410         # chi-square theoritical at alpha = 0.05
X_sq_thr1 = 10.851        # chi-square theoritical at alpha = 0.95

# 90% Confidence interval

llim = (2*T)/X_sq_thr
ulim = (2*T)/X_sq_thr1

# Result
print "90% confidence interval(in hours): (",int(round(llim,0)),",",int(round(ulim,0)),") "
90% confidence interval(in hours): ( 2764 , 8001 )

print "null hypothesis can not be rejected"
print "Failure rate is greater than 0.40 failure per thousand hours."
else:

Practical T value:  43410
null hypothesis must be rejected
Failure rate is less than 0.40 failure per thousand hours.
