failure 
The system is subject to failure and it fails once the total cumulative damage level first exceeds a fixed threshold.


Upon failure the system must be replaced by a new and identical one and a cost is incurred.


If the system is replaced before failure, a smaller cost is incurred.


Reliability analysis for a repairable parallel system with timevarying failure rates


In this paper, the failure rates are expressed in polynomial configuration.


The constant, linear and Weibull failure rate are in their special form.


The polynomial failure rates provide flexibility in modeling the practical timevarying failure rates.


A renewable component with exponential failure and repair times is considered, and its instantaneous availability at time t is denoted by A(t).


It not only has high positioning accuracy, but also reduces the location failure probability.


The analysis on voltage distribution characteristics is significant to the study of insulation failure mechanisms and structure design.


Rotation, scaling and translation (RST) attacks can desynchronize watermark detection, which causes failure in many watermarking systems.


It has been shown that shear failure of undisturbed soils approximately indicate plastic failure, while shear failure of remolded soils is of the elastic nature.


Especially, in a case with no failure and a case with only one failure, the concrete computational methods are presented.


The scheduling system also can deal with some abnormal conditions, such as machine tool failure and urgent tasks.


The strain history and damage evolvement of bearing material acted on by jet impact load can be calculated efficiently using the proposed method, which develops a new method of analyzing cavitation erosion failure of the bearing surface.


The equivalent stress and strain for a cubic single crystal material as failure parameters have the largest correlation coefficient.


A power law exists between k and the failure cycle.


Within three months after transplantation, four recipients (7.14%) died due to smallforsize syndrome (one case), renal failure (one case) and multiple organ failure (two cases).


Intraabdominal hypertension is an independent cause of acute renal failure after orthotopic liver transplantation


An independent association between acute renal failure (ARF) and intraabdominal hypertension (IAH) after liver transplantation has not been established previously.
