Panel Session 2: Maintenance and System Protection against Internal Failures and External Impacts


Introduction


The purpose of system health management is to enhance the reliability of systems against internal failures and/or external impacts. The internal failures can be hard failures or soft failures, whereas the external impacts can be either external unintentional impacts or intentional impacts. For systems subject to internal failures or external shocks, maintenance is always an effective strategy to enhance the system availability. For systems subject to intentional external impacts, false targets deployment and preventive strike are also effective tactics besides direct system protection. This section contains several works dealing with the optimal inspection and maintenance strategies for engineering systems, one work dealing with the health management of human beings, and one work dealing with optimal system defense strategy against external intentional impacts.
