Fault current — A fault current is an abnormal current in an electric circuit due to a fault (usually a short circuit or abnormally low impedance path).In terms of installation wiring, the prospective short circuit current must be known as it influences the… … Wikipedia
Fault-tolerant computer systems — are systems designed around the concepts of fault tolerance. In essence, they have to be able to keep working to a level of satisfaction in the presence of faults. Types of fault tolerance Most fault tolerant computer systems are designed to be… … Wikipedia
Fault tree analysis — (FTA) is a failure analysis in which an undesired state of a system is analyzed using boolean logic to combine a series of lower level events. This analysis method is mainly used in the field of safety engineering to quantitatively determine the… … Wikipedia
Fault friction — describes the relation of friction to fault mechanics. Rock failure and associated earthquakes are very much a fractal operation (see Characteristic earthquakes). The process remains scale invariant down to the smallest crystal. Thus, the… … Wikipedia
Time-sharing — refers to sharing a computing resource among many users by multitasking. Because early mainframes and minicomputers were extremely expensive, it was rarely possible to allow a single user exclusive access to the machine for interactive use. But… … Wikipedia
Fault injection — In software testing, fault injection is a technique for improving the coverage of a test by introducing faults in order to test code paths, in particular error handling code paths, that might otherwise rarely be followed. It is often used with… … Wikipedia
Fault-tolerant design — In engineering, Fault tolerant design, also known as fail safe design, is a design that enables a system to continue operation, possibly at a reduced level (also known as graceful degradation), rather than failing completely, when some part of… … Wikipedia
Time-Triggered Protocol — Introduction= TTP (Time Triggered Protocol) is an open and modular control system platform technology that supports the design of upgradeable, reusable and easy to integrate systems. As a time triggered field bus, it can significantly impact the… … Wikipedia
Fault-tolerant system — This article contains specific implementations of fault tolerant systems. For general theory, see fault tolerant design. Fault tolerance or graceful degradation is the property that enables a system (often computer based) to continue operating… … Wikipedia
Fault (legal) — The meaning of fault Different forms of liability employ different notions of fault, in some there is no need to prove fault. Fault basically refers to legal blameworthiness and responsibility in each area of law. It refers to both the Actus Reus … Wikipedia
