Abstract : The realization that in mechanical components stress, strength, and the factors that modify them are by nature distributed has pointed to the need for design methods that incorporate the unique powers of the theories of probability and statistics. Furthermore, since with any designed product of mechanical nature a finite probability of failure is associated, this suggests that another probability, called reliability, must be the logical measure of design adequacy of such products. As the design of reliable and optimized components and systems of dynamic and rotary machinery is becoming a matter of increasing concern, methods by which a specified level of reliability can, in an a priori manner, be designed into a component assume great importance. So also does the existance of supporting design data in distributional form. (Author)
