Subject: Filament Reliability
Does anyone have any reliability data for filaments? Is there an equivalent 217 type I could use? Thanks in advance

Subject: Failure model for a metal bellows
I am trying to find a failure rate model similar to other mechanical models in the Carderock mechanical reliability handbook. I realize that NPRD-95 has a couple of data points for bellows but they are GF environment (ours is naval unsheltered) and the failure rate is given independent of number of cycles, material, etc. I would expect those parameters to play a large part in the failure of a bellows.

Subject: Failure Rate Conversion
I have an MTBF figure for an LRU operating in A(IC) Airborne Inhabited Cargo enviroment of 6,000 hrs. I am going to operate it in the G(M) Ground Mobile enviroment. Does anyone know the conversion factor I use to translate A(IC) to G(M)?

Subject: Reliability of Fans
Does anyone know where I can find reliability data for DC Fan Motors. The fan is used inside a computer and its a 40x40x28mm with ball-bearing construction.
I referenced the NPRD data for a Fan, Axial, Tube but the failure rate for 46.8 to 1123.4 for ground benigh. I am esp interested in MTBF vs Temp and Fan Speed. Also, what are the failure modes (lock-up, electrical stress, etc) and % of occurence would be great. Thank you.
