...J. A. Cordes; J. Lee; T. L. Myers; G. Hader; L. Reinhardt; C. Kessler; N. Gray; M. A. Guevara The U.S. Army uses several types of tests to increase the reliability of gun-fired munitions. Systems, subsystems, and components are gun fired to assess reliability. When failures are found, root-cause...

...Isaac Elishakoff; Lova Andriamasy; Maurice Lemaire This study investigates the combined effect of randomness in initial geometric imperfections and the applied loading on the reliability of axially compressed cylindrical shells. In order to gain insight we consider simplest possible case when both...
