This book clearly explains how to do probabilistic calculations to accomplish SIL verification for safety systems. Starting with a description of the safety lifecycle, the authors show where and how SIL verification fits into the key activities from conceptual design through commissioning. The book not only explains the theory and methods for doing the calculations, the authors also provide many examples from the chemical, petrochemical, power and oil & gas industries. Through numerous examples, the authors make the material understandable, plus the data tables give readers important information needed to do the verification calculations. The authors provide example failure rate data and other important metrics needed for probabilistic calculations. Appendices cover probability, failure modes, diagnostic analysis, fault tree analysis, Markov Models, and system architectures.
Design, Analysis and Justification
This newly revised best-seller is ideal for instrumentation and control system engineers in the process industries who are responsible for designing, installing, and maintaining safety instrumented systems. Engineers, managers, technicians, and sales professionals employed by end users, engineering firms, systems integrators, and consultants can all benefit from the material presented here. This book addresses the increased realization that todays engineering systemsand the computers used to control themare capable of large-scale destruction. When even a single accident could be disastrous, the luxury of learning from experience no longer exists. This ...
A straightfoward guide to functional safety, IEC 61508 and related standarts, including process IEC 61511 and machinery IEC 62061 and ISO 13849
Safety Critical Systems Handbook: A Straightfoward Guide to Functional Safety, IEC 61508 (2010 Edition) and Related Standards, Including Process IEC 61511 and Machinery IEC 62061 AND ISO 13849, Third Edition, offers a practical guide to the functional safety standard IEC 61508. The book is organized into three parts. Part A discusses the concept of functional safety and the need to express targets by means of safety integrity levels. It places functional safety in context, along with risk assessment, likelihood of fatality, and the cost of conformance. It also explains the life-cycle approach, together with the basic outline of IEC 61508 (known as BS E...
Design and Development for Embedded Applications
This handbook provides a consolidated, comprehensive information resource for engineers working with mission and safety critical systems. Principles, regulations, and processes common to all critical design projects are introduced in the opening chapters. Expert contributors then offer development models, process templates, and documentation guidelines from their own core critical applications fields: medical, aerospace, and military. Readers will gain in-depth knowledge of how to avoid common pitfalls and meet even the strictest certification standards. Particular emphasis is placed on best practices, design tradeoffs, and testing procedures. *Comprehensive coverage of all key concerns for designers of critical systems including standards complianc...
