5.6 Case Study 4: Dual Event and Cascading FDEP
Consider an example of systems involving both cascading FDEP and dual trigger‐basic events in Figure 5.10. Specifically, T1 and T2 are dual events (trigger events for FDEP and basic events contributing to the two AND gates at the same time). All the system components fail exponentially with constant failure rates (/hour) λA = 2e − 5, λB = 1e − 5, λT1 = 1e − 4, and λT2 = 1e − 5. Five sets of coverage factors in Table 5.15 are considered. The r factor is assumed to be ZERO for all the system components. Mission time of t = 10 000 hours is used for the analysis.
