A new family of life distributions
Abstract : A new two parameter family of life length distributions is presented which is derived from a model for fatigue. This derivation follows from considerations of renewal theory for the numberExpand
ON THE IMPORTANCE OF DIFFERENT COMPONENTS IN A MULTICOMPONENT SYSTEM
TLDR
A quantitative definition of this notion of importance is proposed in the present paper for systems with coherent structures, assuming that only the structure of the system is known, or that also the reliabilities of all components are known. Expand
ESTIMATION FOR A FAMILY OF LIFE DISTRIBUTIONS WITH APPLICATIONS TO FATIGUE
Abstract : The estimation problem is studied for a new two-parameter family of life length distributions which has been previously derived from a model of fatigue crack growth. Maximum likelihoodExpand

On a Use of the Mann-Whitney Statistic
For m = n an equivalent statistic had been proposed and studied earlier by Wilcoxon [2]. The main aim of these studies was to develop a test of the hypothesis that X and Y have the same probabilityExpand
Multi-Component Systems and Structures and Their Reliability
A number of recent publications have dealt with problems of analyzing the performance of multi-component systems and evaluating their reliability. For example, a comprehensive theory of two-terminalExpand
