An Algorithm for Fault-Tree Construction

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

    Abstract

    An algorithm for performing certain parts of the fault tree construction process is described. Its input is a flow sheet of the plant, a piping and instrumentation diagram, or a wiring diagram of the circuits, to be analysed, together with a standard library of component functional and failure models. A systematic approach to component model construction is also presented.
