A Stress-Strength Interval-System Reliability Model and Its Applications in Heart Conditions  
Author Hoang Pham




Abstract The random variable X represents the stress placed on the system by the operating environment and random variable Y represents the strength of the system. A system is able to perform its intended function if its strength is greater than the stress imposed upon it. Reliability of the system is defined as the probability that the system is strong enough to overcome the stress. That is, R = P(Y >X). In other words, reliability is the probability that the strengths of the unit are greater than the stresses. The stress-strength model has found interests in many applications include mechanical engineering and human heart monitoring conditions.
