Mechanical Reliability Improvement: Probability and Statistics for Experimental Testingby Little Little
Synopses & Reviews
Providing probability and statistical concepts developed using pseudorandom numbers, this book covers enumeration-, simulation-, and randomization-based statistical analyses for comparison of the test performance of alternative designs, as well as simulation- and randomization-based tests for examination of the credibility of statistical presumptions. the book discusses centroid and moment of inertia analogies for mean and variance and the organization structure of completely randomized, randomized complete block, and split spot experiment test programs. A compact disc with nearly 200 microcomputer programs illustrating a wide range of reliability and statistical analyses is included.
Book News Annotation:
This textbook explains the statistical analysis of life and strength data generated by reliability improvement experiment test programs. Little (mechanical engineering, University of Michigan) presents the concepts of experiment test program planning and probability, then illustrates statistical analyses for mechanical reliability applications. Orthogonal statistical models, conceptual normal distribution, statistical analysis of variance, and linear regression are covered. The CD-ROM contains 176 microcomputer programs for PC platforms.
