Fault tree analysis is an important technique in determining the safety and dependability of complex systems. Fault trees are used as a major tool in the study of system safety as well as in reliability and availability studies.
The basic methods construction, logical analysis, probability evaluation and influence study are described in this book. The following extensions of fault trees, non-coherent fault trees, fault trees with delay and multi-performance fault trees, are also explained. Traditional algorithms for fault tree analysis are presented, as well as more recent algorithms based on binary decision diagrams (BDD).


1. Systems with a Single Component.
2. Multi-Component Systems.
3. Fault Tree Construction.
4. Minimal Sets.
5. Probabilistic Evaluation.
6. Influence Study.
7. Modules - Phases - Common Modes.
8. Extensions: Non-coherent Fault Trees with Delay Multi-performance.
9. Binary Decision Diagrams.
10. Stochastic Simulation of Fault Trees.
Appendices: BDD Algorithms in FT Analysis; European Benchmark in Fault Trees; Some Results of Probabilities.
