The case for architecture-specific common cause failure rates and how they affect system performance

In redundant systems composed of identical units, common cause failures can significantly affect system performance. We show that the probabilities of common cause failure are architecture specific. We derive the probabilities for generalized dual and triplex systems. We analyze and compare three co...
