ftree.calc: Fault Tree Calculation In FaultTree: Fault Trees for Risk and Reliability Analysis

Description

ftree.calc performs gate-by-gate calculations from bottom to top of fault tree.

Usage

 1 ftree.calc(DF, use.bdd=FALSE)

Arguments

 DF A fault tree dataframe such as returned from ftree.make or related add... functions. use.bdd A logical determining whether to use the bdd for probability calculations rather than simple solutions.

Value

Returns a dataframe containing 18 columns for holding data, results, and connection information.
