Description

This data frame contains data on characteristics and numbers of failures observed in valve types from one pressurised water reactor.

Usage

Format

A data frame with 90 observations on the following 7 variables.

System

a numerical code corresponding to 5 categories of system (1 = containment, 2 = nuclear, 3 = power conversion, 4 = safety, 5 = process auxiliary)

Operator

a numerical code corresponding to 4 different operator types (1 = air, 2 = solenoid, 3 = motor=driven, 4 = manual)

Valve

a numerical code corresponding to 6 different valve types (1 = ball, 2 = butterfly, 3 = diaphram, 4 = gate, 5 = globe, 6 = directional control)

Size

a numerical code corresponding to 3 head size categories (1 = less than 2 inches, 2 = 2–10 inches, 3 = 10–30 inches)

Mode

a numerical code corresponding to two categories of operation mode (1 = normally closed, 2 = normally open)

Failures

Number of failures observed

Time

Lengths of observation time
