TESTING 15.1 Since this is a series system , we need toA find R such that R8 = .95 so R = (95)”8 = .9936. 15.2 Since this is a parallel system , we need to ﬁnd R such that
1— .96 = (1 — R)? SO R: 1 — (1 ~— .96)1/5 = .475. 15.3 The reliability of the B, C parallel segment is : BBC = 1 — (1 ~ .80)(1 — .90) = .980. .587 588 Chapter 15 RELIABILITY AND LIFE TESTING The reliability of the E. F parallel segment is : REF =1—(1—.90)(1—.85):.985. The reliability of the A. B, C combination segment is : Rm = RA BBC = (.95)(.980) = .931. The reliability of the D, E. F combination segment is : RDEF = RD REF = (.99)(.985) = .97515. Thus. the reliability of the system is: R 1— (1 — RABC)(1— RDEF)
1— (1 — .931)(1 — .97515) = .9983. 15.4 The diagram of the system is shown in Figure 15.1. B1

(a) The reliability of the B component is : 589 R3 = 1—(1—.9995)(1—.999)(1—.20)=.9999996. ,The reliability of the C component is : RC =1—(1—.95)(1—.85)=.9925. Thus, the reliability of the system is: R = BA BB RC = (.9999)(.9999996)(.9925) = .9924. (b) In this case, the reliability of the B component is
BB 2 1~(1.9995)(1—.999)(1~.99) = 1— 5 x10‘9.
Thus, the reliability of the system is: R 2 RA RB RC = (.9999)(1— 5 x 10'9)(.9925) = .9924. (c) The reliability of the B component ( before the increase in reliability of B3 )
is : R3 = 1 — (1 — .9995)(1 — .20) = .9996. Thus, the reliability of the system is:
R = (.9999)(.9996)(.9925) = .9920.
After the increase, the reliability of the component B3 is : RB : 1 a (1 —— .9995)(1 . .99) = 999995. 590 Chapter 15 RELIABILITY AND LIFE TESTING so the reliability of the system is
R = (.9999)(.999995)(.9925) = .9924. The reliability of the system has increased by .0004 . (d) The reliability of the C component is now
RC = 1 — (1 — .95)(1 — .85)(1 — .80) = .9985
so the reliability of the system is R = (.9999)(.9999996)(.9985) = .9984 which is an increase of .006 over the original system, 15.5 (a) We have that
