Non-Lethal Projectile Characterisation Method: Application to 40-mm SIR-X and Condor NT901 Projectiles

The growing market of kinetic energy non-lethal weapons (KENLW) using deformable projectiles has increased the need of numerically assessing the impacts of KENLW projectiles on the human body in terms of injury risk and consequently the determination of the effective distance of use of these weapons. In the context of simulations of non-lethal impacts on

The 2018 Body of Knowledge for the Certified Reliability Engineer (CRE)

The American Society of Quality has published the 3rd edition of the Certified Reliability Engineer Handbook. This handbook is fully updated to the 2018 Body of Knowledge for the Certified Reliability Engineer (CRE), including the new sections on leadership, performance monitoring, root cause analysis, and quality triangles. Its purpose is to assist individuals preparing for

Applying Game Theory and Computer Simulation to Fault Tree Analysis

Fault tree analysis is a useful probability theory-based tool for evaluating a system’s risk and reliability. Typically, fault trees are populated with basic event failure probabilities from a variety of quantitative and qualitative sources. This article presents a new methodology that combines simulation with game theory to populate a fault tree with strictly quantitative probability
