ENRE600
Fundamentals of Failure Mechanisms
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Credit only granted for: ENMA698M, ENNU648M, or ENRE600.
Physical, chemical, and thermal related failures are introduced through a basic understanding of degradation mechanisms such as diffusion, electromigration, defects and defect migration. The failure mechanisms in basic material types will be taught. Failure mechanisms observed in real devices will also be presented. Problems related to manufacturing, and achieving quality and reliability will be analyzed. Mechanical failures are emphasized from the point of view of complex fatigue theory. The mathematical and statistical basis for analysis is presented as well as Failure Mode and Failure Anaylsis.
Those sections that begin with a letter are taught via ITV and are not i ntended for College Park campus students.
ENRE602
Reliability Analysis
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Principal methods of reliability analysis, including fault tree and reliability block diagrams; Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA); event tree construction and evaluation; reliability data collection and analysis; methods of modeling systems for reliability analysis. Focus on problems related to process industries, fossil-fueled power plant availability, and other systems of concern to engineers.

Probabilistic Risk Assessment
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Prerequisite: ENRE602.
Also offered as: ENNU651.
Credit only granted for: ENNU651 or ENRE670.
Why study risk, sources of risk, overview of Risk Assessment and Risk Management, relation to System Safety and Reliability Engineering; measures, representation, communication, and perception of risk; overview of use of risk assessment results in decision making; overview of Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) process; detailed converge of PRA methods including (1) methods for risk scenario development such as identification of initiators, event sequence diagrams, event trees, causal modeling (fault trees, influence diagrams, and hybrid methods), and simulation approaches; (2) methods of risk scenario likelihood assessment, including quantitative and qualitative approaches, as well as uncertainty modeling and analysis. Also covers methods for risk modeling of system hardware behavior, physical phenomena, human behavior, software behavior, organizational environment, and external physical environment. Additional core topics include risk model integration and quantification (Boolean-based, binary decsion diagram, Bayesian belief networks, and hybrid methods), simulation-based Dynamic PRA methods (discrete and continuous) and several examples of large scale PRAs for space missions, nuclear power, aviation and medical systems.
