|Title:||Experimental Studies of Combined Reliability|
|Keywords:||reliability, Combined Dependability, lamps, machine|
|Abstract:||<p> In the field of Reliability, a new concept is introduced. The Combined Dependability theory is put forth in this thesis. </p> <p> Attempts are made to prove this theory experimentally by use of accelerated failure tests of GE-47 miniature lamps. The lamps are tested individually and ten in series. The individual lamp test results are then used for the prediction of the reliability of the ten lamps in series.</p> <p> The ten lamps in series simulate a machine with ten components. A failure of one of the components will produce a failure of the machine. The reliability of the machine can be found if the reliability of each part is known. The single part when tested individually must be subjected to the same stresses and conditions that it would encounter when operating in the machine. If this is not accomplished, the machine's calculation of reliability is invalid.</p>|
