The Challenger Solid Rocket Boosters (SRB) Field Joint initial design was deemed as a direct cause of the shuttles catastrophic failure during lift off. The Field Joint SRB was a key component in containing dangerous gases produced in the SRB. After conducting research on the Challenger accident, a Fault Tree Analysis was developed to analyze the reliability of the SRB field joint configuration in relation to its goals. The reliability model will show how the field joint fell short in terms of operational reliability. Read more at.
