Reliability Analysis of a Redundant Cascade System by Using Markovian Approach
Abstract: In the present work, it is assumed that the n-components are arranged in the hierarchial order. The n-cascade system surviving with loss of m components by k number of attacks is studied; the general equation for the reliability is obtained for the above said system; and the system reliability is computed numerically for 6-cascade system for 2-number of attacks.
