Masters Theses

"The objective of this research is to develop an integrated design methodology for reliability and robustness. Reliability-based design (RBD) and robust design (RD) are important to obtain optimal design characterized by low probability of failure and minimum performance variations respectively. But performing both RBD and RD in a product design may be conflicting and time consuming. An integrated design model is needed to achieve both reliability and robustness simultaneously. The purpose of this thesis is to integrate reliability and robustness. To achieve this objective, we first study the general relationship between reliability and robustness. Then we perform a numerical study ...
