VBR33 RBI PoF
RBI Probability of Failure  Damage Factors
September 19  21, 2012 ISIM Timisoara Romania
Lecturer: Petar StanojeviÄ‡
The focus of the course is on the damage mechanisms appearing in different industries and their influence to the calculation of probability of failure of equipment. A large number of well elaborated examples are included.
At the end of the course students are expected to have basic knowledge about:
 main principles of the RBI
 Damage Factors used in RBI PoF Analysis
The course is dedicated to:
 engineers, managers, inspectors, legislators (university level)
 engineers working in maintenance petroleum/power/process industry
 other professionals dealing with risk and safety in industry
 university students of Steinbeis Master of Risk Engineering and Management program and similar programs
