RELIABILITY APPROXIMATION FOR SOLID SHAFT UNDER GAMMA SETUP
This paper proposes a new approach for evaluating the reliability ofsystem where stress and strength are defined as complex function and whose reliability is not derivable through analytic techniques. The discretization was the earlier approach for reliability approximation. But this method fails to provide extent of error in terms of distributional parameters. This proposes method of offering bound based approach where reliability planner`s not only get a clear idea about the extent of error but also can manipulate in terms of design parameters.Here, this reliability approximation has been under taken under the Gamma setup which is widely used model for reliability analysis. Using our work, reliability planners will be able to obtain reliability in terms of design parameters during the early stages of product design and adjust it according to their requirements.
