This book provides engineers with the safety and risk assessment tools and techniques they need to work effectively in any safety or reliability critical environment. These tools are primarily statistical. Where David Smith’s book succeeds is by meeting the needs of an applied audience by setting these tools in the context of the design and operation of safety related processes and systems. Now in its Eighth Edition, this is regarded as the core reference in this field, and the success of its approach is reflected in the popularity of this standard work. It deals with all aspects of reliability, safety-related systems, and the assessment and management of risk in a simple and straightforward way, pre-supposing no prior knowledge and dealing simply and realistically with numerical data by using the minimum of mathematical and technical jargon.

A soil moisture sensor system consisting of small heat-pulse probes, a microcontroller, and software for data acquisition and signal conditioning was developed for use in space based plant growth units. The microcontroller allows the sensors to be used in a control application with minimum time demands on the control subsystem. A single digital serial link may be shared by up to 16 microcontrollers with 8 sensors each, for a total of 128 sensors. The microcontroller independently applies heat cycles to determine the current moisture level, and responds to a request from the computer with the last known value. Using the microcontroller system, repeatability testing was completed for wet 1–2 mm arcillite. The standard deviation in wet arcillite over a 16-hour period was about 3%. Software filtering can be used to reduce the standard deviation further. In addition to determining root zone moisture levels, this system can also be used to monitor root zone temperature and to detect wavefront movement through a dry rooting medium.

SAE MOBILUS® Search Tips
Please note: All terms not contained within quotes, will be evaluated using the OR operator. This means that your search results will contain all results that contain ANY of the entered terms.
AND, OR, NOT
SAE MOBILUS supports the use of the AND, OR and NOT BOOLEAN operators ONLY function with the Advanced Search.
Using the asterisk, ( * ) allows you to search for a partial word. For example, entering a keyword search of aero* will search for any word beginning with aero.
Using the question mark, ( ? ) allows you to search for a word with a single character wildcard. For example, searching for t?re would match both tire and tyre
Words in double quotes " " are treated as a phrase. Conducting a search for "heat model" will return all results in which the exact phrase "heat model" is found, while "heat modeling" would NOT be included.
A term combined with a phrase will be joined with an OR operator.
Searching for Standards
When searching for a standard please use the entire Document Number assigned, which includes the abbreviation. A space can be used, or omitted between the abbreviation and number.
