Reliability Design of Car Suspension Coil Spring Based on Maximum Entropy Method


Article Preview

A practical and effective numerical method of reliability design with arbitrary distribution parameters is proposed in the paper. And techniques from the maximum entropy method, the reliability design theory and probabilistic engineering design are employed to present an approach for the reliability design with arbitrary distribution parameters. Therefore maximizing the entropy of the state equation distribution should lead to the least biased estimate of its form, which helps us analyze the reliability design of automobile components from an elementarily.
