**failure probability**of a tether system with k components can thus be calculated by example , we assume that the bending stress at the tether midpoint is 70 % of the total stress . The varying scale parameter can thus be expressed as ...Page 69

F - 1 ) is the conditional

**failure probability**of ith tether due to both fatigue failure and overload failure . For n = 3 , there are 10 equivalent midpoint components in the two remaining tethers . The**failure probability**of the second ...Page 312

For example , high non - structural

**failure probabilities**( Case 5 in the example ) ... safety index is kept above 3.0 , therefore the structural**failure probability**is very small , and hence the failure consequential cost is small .### What people are saying - Write a review
