A Reliability Study of Diesel Engines 640470

A study of diesel engine endurance test data proved that the failure rate characteristics of a complex machine such as a diesel engine are similar to failure characteristics of missile and electronic equipment, at least in a qualitative case. This paper studies a formal reliability program as it might be applied to complex mechanical devices. The existence of much field data on diesel engines provides an excellent base for a reliability program in that industry.
