He also has the patent on the afterburner used on the F-100 engine in the F-15 and F-16 aircraft. For his original research in Weibull analysis methods he has received numerous awards from SAE, AIAA, ASME, and ISA. He is a fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, SAE, American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics, and the American Society of Quality. He has lectured on Weibull analysis all over the world and his Weibull Handbooks have been translated into Hungarian and Chinese.

Review:

"...The handbook, together with the software, will be an invaluable aid to reliability engineers." -- The Royal Statistical Society Journal
