Part of the Topics in Safety, Risk, Reliability and Quality book series (TSRQ, volume 30)


Practical predictive maintenance (and repair) methodology for pipeline systems is based on the theory of the two-(multilevel) policy of managing reliability of mechanical systems proposed in Timashev, (Reliability of Large Mechanical Systems, 1982, [1]), for various conditional and physical (real-life) failure criteria.
