Failures by SCC in buried pipelines
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2002-10)
Until a few years ago there had been no record of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) as a main cause of failures in Argentine pipelines, but as the pipeline system became of a certain age this mechanism started to have an ...
Bayesian Analysis for the Generalized Lognormal Distribution Applied to Failure Time Analysis
(UNIV NAC COLOMBIA, DEPT ESTADISTICA, 2011)
There are several versions of the lognormal distribution in the statistical literature, one is based in the exponential transformation of generalized normal distribution (GN). This paper presents the Bayesian analysis for ...
Failure analysis of a damaged direct injection diesel engine piston
(Springer New York LLC, 2017-08-24)
This work deals with the piston failures found in diesel engines functioning in light trucks. The failure was a hole inside the bowl located at the top of the piston, which is the combustion chamber of the engine. This ...
Evaluation of Notched Strength of Composite Laminates for Structural Design
(Sage Publications LtdLondonInglaterra, 2010)
Risk analysis in low-voltage distribution systems
(SAGE Publications Ltd, 2019)
© IMechE 2018. Electric power distribution is a complex network involving technical challenges from a wide range of sources, a considerable degree of risk and substantial financial resources. Design and maintenance strategies ...
Failure probability metric by machine learning for online risk assessment in distribution networks
The risk assessment approach is useful for monitoring and supervisory control because it provides distribution operator with the capability to quantify the tradeoff between reliability and economic performance. The risk ...
Analysis of the failure tolerance of linear access networks
(IEEE Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2018)
In this paper, we study the disconnection of a moving vehicle from a linear access network composed of cheap WiFi access points in the context of telecommuting in massive transportation systems. In concrete, we analyze the ...
Common root causes in recent failures of cranes
Catastrophic failure of cranes is a potentially very dangerous event and has often fatal consequences. The failures of two cranes are discussed in this study. Both cranes have different designs, but common root causes have ...
