Formatted abstract
The research on system of structural safety and reliability (e.g. railways and pipelines) has always been going on. All system is subject to a level of unreliable degree in which they gradually degrade and failed. At present, many papers have been published and contributed to the development of system reliability. With increasing traffic and shortening of maintenance windows in present environment, ensuring a safe and reliable operation of the railways are important if the rail mode of transport is to flourish and complete with other mode of transport and vice versa for pipeline. Complex systems like pipelines and railways having multiple tracks and routes to travel. More than one mode of consideration/parameter account for isolated failures that partially interrupt or delay service or operation. In this thesis report, two kinds of systems which are the lumped/discrete and distributed system will be looked into with the help of literature reviews gathered from various journals. Each of the literature reviews provides an insight into the reliability issues such as identifying failure causes, modelling techniques, environmental considerations and preventive maintenance of the railways and pipelines. In conclusion, this paper provides an overview of the conditions facing planners today through careful analysis and evaluation of these systems.
