Reliability Engineering & System Safety
Reliab Eng Syst Saf
Reliability Engineering and System Safety is an international journal devoted to the development and application of methods for the enhancement of the safety and reliability of complex technological systems, like nuclear power plants, chemical plants, hazardous waste facilities and space systems. An important aim is to achieve a balance between academic material and practical applications. High priority will be given to those works which give due consideration to the comprehensive nature of the task for the enhancement of safety and reliability. The following topics are within the scope of the journal: methods for reliability and probabilistic and non-probabilistic safety assessment, e.g. fault tree analysis, Markovian methods, fuzzy sets, Bayesian methods, etc.; phenomenological uncertainties; relationship between reliability and safety; data collection and analysis; engineering judgement and expert opinions; human reliability; test and maintenance policies; models for ageing and life extension; systems analysis of the impact of earthquakes, fires, tornadoes, winds, floods, etc.; codes, standards and safety criteria; operator decision support systems; software reliability; methods and applications of automatic fault detection and diagnosis; reliability analysis of automatically reconfigurable systems; design and evaluation of man machine systems and human interfaces; design innovation for safety and reliability; safety culture; accident management. The journal will contain contributed material in the form of original research papers, review articles, industrial case studies, safety recommendations and short communications.
