Gordon, and Richard R. Modern railway systems are complex, integrate various technologies, and operate in an environment where the identification of exact system response and behaviors has limita- tions. Complexity in railway systems has significantly increased due to the use of modern technologies in relation to computers, microprocessors, communication, and information technologies, in combination with the historically developed electromechanical compo- nents.

The resulting inter- and intradependencies and redundancies among technologies extend the boundaries of the railway network system. Unwanted and unknown system states may emerge due to unidentified behaviors, which cannot be predicted and, thus, eliminated. It then becomes a target for the designers, operators, maintainers, and approv- ers to consider the acceptable limits of system states.

To do so, railway-related standards have been introduced in terms of reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety RAMS. Modeling, assessment, and demonstration of RAMS require careful and combined han- dling of the following:.

Today, a main objective for carrying out RAMS-related tasks is to obtain a safe, highly reliable and available, innovative and sustainable railway system. Within this, RAMS activities are also fundamental for increasing the lifetime of railway systems. Railway RAMS-related standards provide specifications and require the railway manufacturers and operators to implement a RAMS management system and demonstrate particular safety standards and RAM requirements.

The standards mainly provide general guide- lines on different RAMS issues but do not provide details on how to proceed in real-world projects. Consequently, endless discussions, disagreements, and rework of RAMS activi- ties are experienced in many real-world projects. This is partly due to the fact that there is lack of purposeful understanding of the standards themselves and of the mathematical and statistical methods applicable for RAMS and their use.

The topics in this handbook aim to improve the understanding and application of RAMS-related standards and the theory, methods, tools and techniques and related background. To this aim, dedicated efforts have been coordinated worldwide in writing this handbook. This is the first-ever comprehensive reference handbook that deals with the many unique RAMS issues involved in the difficult environment of an operating railway sys- tem.

This is of concern given that the European Union and some other parts of the world have already mandated the use of RAMS in legislation. The implementation of the RAMS requirements then extends to system and equipment designers and manufacturers, who supply their products. The handbook provides detailed guidance for those involved in the. It can be used as guidance to get the RAMS tasks successfully accomplished, especially in complex railway projects.

It focuses on the several topics of risk, safety, reliability, and maintenance in railway systems and provides state-of-the-art knowledge on the issues therein. The handbook includes 38 chapters authored by key senior experts from industry and renowned professors and researchers from academia. The handbook is divided into two major sections: Section 1 on basic concepts, prediction, and estimation techniques and the second section on RAMS in practice and special topics.

Highlights of the topics covered under each section are pre- sented in the following. Introduction to RAMS requirements Methodology and application of RAMS management along the Basic methods for RAM and decision making railway rolling stock lifecycle Advance methods for RAM and decision making RAMS and security Safety integrity concept Modeling reliability analysis European Train Control System Prognostics and health management Human factors and their applications in railways safety Fuzzy reasoning approach and fuzzy hierarchy process for Independent safety assessment process and methodology—a A guide for preparing comprehensive and complete case for Reliability demonstration tests: Decision rules and associated RAMS as an integrated part of the engineering process and the risks application for railway rolling stock The hazard log: Structure and management in complex project Application of risk analysis methods for railway level crossing System assurance for the railways electromechanical products problems Software reliability in RAMS management Human reliability and RAMS management Safety software development for the railway applications Importance of safety culture for RAMS management Target reliability for new and existing railway engineering Railway security policy and administration in the USA: Reacting structures to the terrorists attack after Sep.

Introduction to IT transformation of safety and risk management systems Formal reliability analysis of railway system using theorem proving technique The authors of the individual chapters have devoted quite some efforts to include cur- rent and real-world applications, recent research findings, and future works in the area of RAMS for railway systems and to cite the most relevant and latest references in their chapters.

Practical and insightful descriptions are presented in order to nourish RAMS practitioners of any level, from practicing and knowledgeable senior RAMS engineers and managers to beginning professionals and to researchers. Given the multidisciplinary breadth and the technical depth of the handbook, we believe that readers from differ- ent fields of engineering can find noteworthy reading in much greater detail than in other engineering risk and safety-related publications.

The content of each chapter is based on established and accepted practices, publications in top-ranked journals, and conferences. The comprehensive contents and the involvement of a team of multidisciplinary experts writing on their areas of expertise provide the editors confi- dence that this handbook is a high-quality reference handbook for students, researchers, railway network operators and maintainers, and railway safety regulators, plus the associ- ated equipment designers and manufacturers worldwide.

We believe that this handbook is suited to the need of RAMS in railways.

Qamar Mahboob has more than 15 years of project experience and several scientific publications in the field of reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety RAMS. His research focuses on the modeling of the failure— repair—maintenance behavior of components and complex systems, for the analysis of their reliability, maintainability, prognostics, safety, vulnerability, resilience, and security characteristics and on the development and use of Monte Carlo simulation methods, soft computing techniques and optimization heuristics.

He is the author or coauthor of seven international books and more than papers on international journals. Dimitris Diamantidis Gary A. Rohan Sharma Richard R. This chapter explains the general requirements toward railway RAMS management throughout the life cycle of a technol- ogy or system for railway application.

The topics of RAMS management and its process are covered in this chapter a way that a reliable, safe, cost-optimal, and improved quality of railway systems may be achieved. To achieve all these, a life cycle approach needs to be adopted.

This life cycle approach provides basic concepts and struc- ture for planning, managing, implementing, controlling, and monitoring of all aspects of a railway project, incorporating RAMS as well, as the project proceeds through the life cycle phases.

This life cycle and three major areas are applicable to any railway product or subsystem under consideration regardless of its level or position within the complete railway system. In other words, each considered subsystem level can be combined and integrated into the supe- rior system until the top level of the complete railway system has been obtained. The life cycle process can be simplified depending on the applicable project phases.

It is important to mention that warranty periods are also defined within the life cycle phases of a project, and the warranty demonstration period may overlap with more than one phase of the life cycle. Concept 1. Risk assessment System definition and operational conditions.

Risk analysis and evaluation 3. Specification of system 4 requirements. Architecture and 5 apportionment of system requirements. Design and 6 Demonstration of compliance requirements.

Он слышал собственный крик о помощи, но, кроме стука ботинок сзади и учащенного дыхания, утренняя тишина не нарушалась ничем. Беккер почувствовал жжение в боку. Наверное, за ним тянется красный след на белых камнях. Он искал глазами открытую дверь или ворота - любой выход из этого бесконечного каньона, - но ничего не. Улочка начала сужаться. - Soccoro! - Его голос звучал еле слышно.  - Помогите.

Беккер поморщился. - Предпочитаю вид спорта, в котором я могу выиграть. - Победа любой ценой? - улыбнулась Сьюзан. Защитник Джорджтауна перехватил опасную передачу, и по трибунам пронесся одобрительный гул. Сьюзан наклонилась к Дэвиду и шепнула ему на ухо: - Доктор.

Темнота коридора перетекла в просторное цементное помещение, пропитанное запахом пота и алкоголя, и Беккеру открылась абсолютно сюрреалистическая картина: в глубокой пещере двигались, слившись в сплошную массу, сотни человеческих тел. Они наклонялись и распрямлялись, прижав руки к бокам, а их головы при этом раскачивались, как безжизненные шары, едва прикрепленные к негнущимся спинам. Какие-то безумцы ныряли со сцены в это людское море, и его волны швыряли их вперед и назад, как волейбольные мячи на пляже. Откуда-то сверху падали пульсирующие стробоскопические вспышки света, придававшие всему этому сходство со старым немым кино.

Я хочу уничтожить все следы Цифровой крепости до того, как мы откроем двери. Сьюзан неохотно кивнула. План неплохой. Когда служба безопасности извлечет Хейла из подсобного помещения и обвинит в убийстве Чатрукьяна, он скорее всего попытается шантажировать их обнародованием информации о Цифровой крепости.

Следуя плану, он бросился в проход и, оказавшись внутри, лицом к правому углу, выстрелил.

 Если честно… - Он вытянул шею и подвигал головой влево и вправо.  - Мне не помешала бы еще одна подушка, если вас это не затруднит. - Нисколько.

Подойдя вплотную, незнакомец буквально пронзил ее взглядом. - Кто это? - спросил. - Сьюзан Флетчер, - ответил Бринкерхофф. Человек-гигант удивленно поднял брови.

 Не могу вспомнить… - Клушар явно терял последние силы. - Подумайте, - продолжал настаивать Беккер.  - Очень важно, чтобы досье консульства было как можно более полным. Мне нужно подтвердить ваш рассказ заявлениями других свидетелей. Необходима любая информация, которая поможет мне их разыскать.

Худоба и неловкость подростка бесследно исчезли.
