Abstract

Most devices (systems) are operated under different environmental conditions. The failure process of a system not only depends on the intrinsic characteristics of the system itself but also on the external environmental conditions under which the system is being operated. In this paper we study a stochastic failure model in a random environment and investigate the effect of the environmental factors on the failure process of the system.
