Technical report
In recent years, a great deal of attention has been focused on the safety and reliability of industrial facilities. Accidents have illustrated dramatically the very large risks such facilities present to human life and property. Being aware of the risks and desiring to mitigate them, the owners and operators of industrial complexes are striving to evaluate the hazards presented by their operations. An important tool in the management of the risks associated with industrial facilities is a component reliability analysis which attempts to define the failure probabilities for individual components in an industrial complex. This study concentrates on the reliability of a component common to many different industrial processes: tall cylindrical columns.
