## Probabilistic Mechanical DesignFocuses on the problem of engineering design based on the behavior of random variables. Gives numerous examples for determining reliability specifications in which both over- and under-designing can be avoided. Presents design methods that be adapted to nuclear, electrical and mining engineering as well as mechanical engineering specialities. |
