A New Shock Model for Systems Subject to Random Threshold Failure

Authors: A. Rangan, A. Tansu


This paper generalizes Yeh Lam-s shock model for renewal shock arrivals and random threshold. Several interesting statistical measures are explicitly obtained. A few special cases and an optimal replacement problem are also discussed.

Keywords: shocks, shock model, optimal replacement, random threshold
