Reliability and Maintainability of In Service Pipelines Book Review:

Reliability and Maintainability of In-Service Pipelines helps engineers understand the best structural analysis methods and more accurately predict the life of their pipeline assets. Expanded to cover real case studies from oil and gas, sewer and water pipes, this reference also explains inline inspection and how the practice influences reliability analysis, along with various reliability models beyond the well-known Monte Carlo method. Encompassing both numerical and analytical methods in structural reliability analysis, this book gives engineers a stronger point of reference covering both pipeline maintenance and monitoring techniques in a single resource. Provides tactics on cost-effective pipeline integrity management decisions and strategy for a variety of different pipes Presents readers with rational tools for strengthening and rehabing existing pipelines Teaches how to optimize materials selection and design parameters for designing future pipelines with a longer service life

Case Studies in Reliability and Maintenance Book Review:

Introducing a groundbreaking companion book to a bestsellingreliability text Reliability is one of the most important characteristicsdefining the quality of a product or system, both for themanufacturer and the purchaser. One achieves high reliabilitythrough careful monitoring of design, materials and other input,production, quality assurance efforts, ongoing maintenance, and avariety of related decisions and activities. All of these factorsmust be considered in determining the costs of production,purchase, and ownership of a product. Case Studies in Reliability and Maintenance servesas a valuable addition to the current literature on the subject ofreliability by bridging the gap between theory and application.Conceived during the preparation of the editors' earlier work,Reliability: Modeling, Prediction, and Optimization (Wiley, 2000),this new volume features twenty-six actual case studies written bytop experts in their fields, each illustrating exactly howreliability models are applied. A valuable companion book to Reliability: Modeling,Prediction, and Optimization, or any other textbook on thesubject, the book features: Case studies from fields such as aerospace, automotive, mining,electronics, power plants, dikes, computer software, weapons,photocopiers, industrial furnaces, granite building cladding,chemistry, and aircraft engines A logical organization according to the life cycle of a productor system A unified format of discussion enhanced by tools, techniques,and models for drawing one's own conclusions Pertinent exercises for reinforcement of ideas Of equal value to both students of reliability theory as well asprofessionals in industry, Case Studies in Reliability andMaintenance should be required reading for anyone seekingto understand how reliability and maintenance issues can beaddressed and resolved in the real world.

Use of Services for Family Planning and Infertility United States 1982 Book Review:

The 1982 statistics on the use of family planning and infertility services presented in this report are preliminary results from Cycle III of the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics. Data were collected through personal interviews with a multistage area probability sample of 7969 women aged 15-44. A detailed series of questions was asked to obtain relatively complete estimates of the extent and type of family planning services received. Statistics on family planning services are limited to women who were able to conceive 3 years before the interview date. Overall, 79% of currently mrried nonsterile women reported using some type of family planning service during the previous 3 years. There were no statistically significant differences between white (79%), black (75%) or Hispanic (77%) wives, or between the 2 income groups. The 1982 survey questions were more comprehensive than those of earlier cycles of the survey. The annual rate of visits for family planning services in 1982 was 1077 visits /1000 women. Teenagers had the highest annual visit rate (1581/1000) of any age group for all sources of family planning services combined. Visit rates declined sharply with age from 1447 at ages 15-24 to 479 at ages 35-44. Similar declines with age also were found in the visit rates for white and black women separately. Nevertheless, the annual visit rate for black women (1334/1000) was significantly higher than that for white women (1033). The highest overall visit rate was for black women 15-19 years of age (1867/1000). Nearly 2/3 of all family planning visits were to private medical sources. Teenagers of all races had higher family planning service visit rates to clinics than to private medical sources, as did black women age 15-24. White women age 20 and older had higher visit rates to private medical services than to clinics. Never married women had higher visit rates to clinics than currently or formerly married women. Data were also collected in 1982 on use of medical services for infertility by women who had difficulty in conceiving or carrying a pregnancy to term. About 1 million ever married women had 1 or more infertility visits in the 12 months before the interview. During the 3 years before interview, about 1.9 million women had infertility visits. For all ever married women, as well as for white and black women separately, infertility services were more likely to be secured from private medical sources than from clinics. The survey design, reliability of the estimates and the terms used are explained in the technical notes.

This unique publication addresses the role of reliability, maintainability, and supportability in the life-cycle of a product, in the context of product effectiveness and worth. It emphasizes all aspects of producing an effective electrical or mechanical system. This is the only handbook available on this subject and the only book that is this comprehensive and informative. The Product Reliability, Maintainability, and Supportability Handbook examines the logistics, cost, and the physics of failure-topics never before found in a single volume on reliability. It describes the factors that affect product effectiveness and worth: performance, reliability, design effectiveness and margin for error, availability, affordability, use effectiveness, and logistic effectiveness. The handbook contains 13 in-depth chapters, opening with an introduction on product effectiveness and worth and concluding with reliability and maintainability data that can be combined with performance data to assess overall effectiveness of the product. The pages are filled with valuable information that can be easily and quickly put to practical use. Basic principles of the mathematical theory of probability and necessary background are provided. Concepts and basic theory of reliability in terms of probability and statistical inference are also given. Techniques for deriving probabilistic models from observational data as well as reliability models and associated validation techniques are detailed. Software and software reliability, quality, and safety are all covered, including the development life-cycle process and mechanisms by which software errors are introduced. The book presents design guidelines and techniques and the requirements for materials, manufacturing, and assembly. Learn how to analyze the reliability of redundant and fault-tolerant products. Use the methods for modeling and analyzing failures of repairable products that normally exhibit wearout characteristics. The Product Reliability, Maintainability, and Supportability Handbook also provides reliability improvement techniques to improve the competitiveness of existing products. The book includes helpful summaries and numerous problem sections to reinforce and test learned information. This reference source is the guide that professionals and technical managers should turn to when they need a comprehensive and detailed overview of everything that goes into producing systems and products that meet customer needs in an effective and timely manner.
