Featuring aerospace examples and applications, Reliability Analysis of Dynamic Systems presents the latest probabilistic techniques for accurate and efficient dynamic system reliability analysis. While other books cover reliability techniques and challenges of large systems more broadly, Dr. Wu presents a focused discussion of methods that are relevant to reliability analysis of large aerospace systems under harmonic loads in the low frequency range. Developed and written to help readers respond to challenges such as non-linearity of the failure surface, Reliability Analysis of Dynamic Systems is a detailed and application-focused reference for engineers, researchers and graduate students looking for the latest modeling solutions. The Shanghai Jiao Tong University Press Aerospace Series publishes titles that cover the latest advances in research and development in aerospace. Its scope includes theoretical studies, design methods, and real-world implementations and applications. The readership for the series is broad, reflecting the wide range of aerospace interest and application, but focuses on engineering. Forthcoming titles in the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Press Aerospace Series include Reliability Analysis of Dynamic Systems; Wake Vortex Control; Aeroacoustics: Fundamentals and Applications in Aeropropulsion Systems; Computational Intelligence in Aerospace Design; Unsteady Flow and Aeroelasticity in Turbomachinery.
