Reliability Demonstration of Clustered Engines 670628

This paper describes a statistical method for estimating and demonstrating the reliability of clustered liquid rocket engines from development, qualification, production, acceptance, and flight test results of varying durations. The method described is an extension of one previously developed for single engines. A worked example is given and management control techniques for assuring data integrity are discussed. The Appendix consists of the mathematical derivation of the system reliability estimates.
