A Performance Oriented Reliability Model of a Pumping Station in a Fire Protection System
Safety analysis and experience reveal fire to be one of the most frequent and serious accident in those industrial plants where a large amount of inflammable material is stored or processed. Thus very high performance levels are required to the systems devoted to the fire detection and estinguishment.
