This text is a concise guide to the principles of probability as used in the design and anlysis of engineered products and systems. With today's demand for total quality, products must be enigneered to have an extended lifetime, operating effectivly at all times to match the user's expectations. This book covers probabilistic methods and approaches used in engineering design and analysis in such disciplines as mechanical, civil, electrical, communications and quality engineering. Its emphasis is on structural analysis and mechanical design as well as practical applications.

Learn how to meld probability into your design solutions to develop superior products and systems. Based on numerous examples from various areas of engineering and applied science, this timely guide shows how probabilistic methods can be used effectively to account for the variability and uncertainty that are an inherent feature of many engineering products and systems. The book is designed for engineers and applied scientists of different specialities, backgrounds, and qualifications, and is accessible even to inexperienced designers. In a straightforward and easy-to-use manner, Applied Probability for Engineers and Scientists offers practical insight into the role of the ``laws of chance'' and causes and effects of variability in numerous design problems encountered in mechanical, structural, materials, reliability, ocean, civil, earthquake, aerospace, industrial, microelectronics, telecommunications, and other areas of engineering. The book contains dozens of examples that demonstrate the key role that probabilistic methods can play in the analysis and design of viable and reliable engineering components, products, and systems.
