For predicting reliability of electronic equipment using mil-hdbk-217f(2), failure modes and their contribution is not specified. How to account for failure modes with this data bank. Can anybody please kindly clarify.

Subject: Relibility of Drive Belts
Hi. Does anyone know of a reliability model for drive belts? I realize they are listed in NPRD-95 but am hoping for a model that can predict life with stress parameters. Thanks!

Subject: Website accessibility
Journal of RAC, 3rd quarter : the website for new DoD Supportability Guidebook (page 23) is wrong.
Cannot be open. Have you another address? Thank John PS: try to send a message by "Contact Us" but when I put Taiwan, it's impossible, there is a bug in your form

Subject: Naval Unsheltered Environment
In performing the reliability prediction for a Navy SATCOM program the question of what opeating enviornment should be used for an antenna that is housed inside a radome is in question. The radome does not provide any protection for temperature, but does appear to provide some protection from solar radiation (less heat), rain, salt spray, etc. In the Reliability Toolkit, Table A11-2 GF can be converted to NU by multiplying the value by 0.3. Is there another factor that can be used for partial protection from the environment to cover this design application?

Subject: residual component life after environmental testing
I would like to know if it is possible for Electronic components, after Environmental Testing, to be used as "usual" or are there any restrictions as to their residual life?
Is there any change in the failure rate as a consequense of these tests?
