Kabir, S., Papadopoulos, Y., Walker, M., Rüde, E., & Securius, P. (2016). Fuzzy temporal fault tree analysis of dynamic systems. International Journal of Approximate Reasoning, 77, 20-37. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijar.2016.05.006

Fault tree analysis (FTA) is a powerful technique that is widely used for evaluating system safety and reliability. It can be used to assess the effects of combinations of failures on system behaviour but is unable to capture sequence dependent dynam... Read More

A synthesis of logic and bio-inspired techniques in the design of dependable systems (2016)
Journal Article
Papadopoulos, Y., Walker, M., Parker, D., Sharvia, S., Bottaci, L., Kabir, S., …Sorokos, I. (2016). A synthesis of logic and bio-inspired techniques in the design of dependable systems. Annual Reviews in Control, 41, 170-182. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.arcontrol.2016.04.008

Much of the development of model-based design and dependability analysis in the design of dependable systems, including software intensive systems, can be attributed to the application of advances in formal logic and its application to fault forecast... Read More

Application of the D3H2 Methodology for the Cost-Effective Design of Dependable Systems (2016)
Journal Article
Papadopoulos, Y., Aizpurua, J. I., Chiacchio, F., Manno, G., & Muxika, E. (2016). Application of the D3H2 Methodology for the Cost-Effective Design of Dependable Systems. Safety, 2(4), 9. https://doi.org/10.3390/safety2020009

The use of dedicated components as a means of achieving desirable levels of fault tolerance in a system may result in high costs. A cost effective way of restoring failed functions is to use heterogeneous redundancies: components that, besides perfor... Read More
