Описание: This book covers the recent applications of computational intelligence techniques in reliability engineering. This volume contains a survey of the contributions made to the optimal reliability design literature in the resent years and chapters devoted to different applications of a genetic algorithm in reliability engineering and to combinations of this algorithm with other computational intelligence techniques. Genetic algorithms are one of the most widely used metaheuristics, inspired by the optimization procedure that exists in nature, the biological phenomenon of evolution.
Описание: Describes various concepts of reliability theory. This book presents an introduction to the key statistical concepts that are required for the implementation of reliability analysis. It is suitable for coastal and hydraulic engineers.
Описание: Offers a multi-disciplinary and integrated explanation of risk assessment procedures that enables non-specialist readers to gain insights into the development of risk analysis procedures. This book is suitable for practising engineers and graduate engineering students across a range of disciplines.
Описание: Written for practising engineers, the aim of this book is to draw lessons from engineering problems and disasters, and to ensure that fewer of them happen in the future. Its purpose is to educate engineers in the application of safety and reliability technologies in their work.
Описание: This volume contains chapters presenting applications of different metaheuristics (ant colony optimization, great deluge algorithm, cross-entropy method and particle swarm optimization) in reliability engineering. It also includes chapters devoted to cellular automata and support vector machines and different applications of artificial neural networks, a powerful adaptive technique that can be used for learning, prediction and optimization. Several chapters describe different aspects of imprecise reliability and applications of fuzzy and vague set theory.
Описание: More than 800,000 dams and thousands of kilometers of dikes have been constructed around the world. These structures are often designed based on a
statistical analysis of the discharge distribution in rivers. However, the history of construction of dams and dikes coexists with the history of failures.
Hundreds of dam failure
events were reported worldwide in the previous century, while every year dikes breach due to high flows in the rivers or for other reasons leading sometimes to catastrophic
consequences. In this book a description is presented of a framework and techniques for modelling structure failure events as well as a proposal to several novel approaches for risk
analysis and assessment by numerical, statistical and constrained based methods in particular to the problems of breach modelling and flood water mitigation.
