Failure Models; Qualitative Analysis
1
A type of safety valve has been shown to exhibit constant failure rate with respect to all
failure modes. A field-study has produced a value of MTTF for the valve of 2345 days.
Assume that the valve operates in a continuous manner and that the failure modes are
independent of each other.
a.- Determine the valve failure rate.
b.- Determine the probability that the valve will survive for 100 days without failing.

Use the relationships summarized on Table 2.1 (p. 20) in your text and the Maple software,
to derive all the entries contained in Table 2.2 (p. 64).

Use the MINITAB software to answer the following questions:
a) Compute descriptive statistics for the data,
b) Construct the histogram,
c) Find good-fitting distributions to the data,
d) Select the best fitting distribution(s) and determine the distribution parameters and
confidence intervals.
e) Use the parameter values of the best fitting distribution and the Maple software to
determine analytical expressions for the failure probability distribution function, the survival
probability function, the failure rate (hazard) function, the MTTF and the MRL for the
bearings.

United Airlines Flight 232 crashed on July, 19th, 1989 in Sioux City IA after experiencing
an unprecedent catastrophic failure. Research the accident to answer the following:
a.- Construct an Event Tree with the initiating event being the specific failure that
ultimately led to the crash (e.g. Fig. 3.23, p. 110, text).
b.- Construct a Fault Tree that could have helped predict the accident (e.g. Fig. 3.19,
p. 102, text).
c.- Construct a FMECA worksheet (e.g. Fig. 3.13, p. 89, text) that could have helped
prevent the accident.
