Using the Beta Distribution for Assessment of Availability and Reliability of Technical Transport Facilities

The paper presents the properties of normalized and generalised beta distributions. Possibility of the use of beta distributions to estimate the reliability and safety of technical transport systems is presented. Suggested is an approach to a method of supplementing the inadequate information with data generated in statistical investigation on the grounds of expert estimates employed for estimating the parameters of beta distributions.
