Subject: MTBF calculation for new components in utilization
Could someone provide me information on the way how to calculate MTBF of a new component in utilization.
My component is installed on aircraft (this type of aircraft is only use since one year and fleet still increase). I know the cumulative fleet flight hour (which is 20,000 FH). Quantity per aircraft is 3 Fields data are two components have been removed and only one failure have been confirmed (the other was no fault found). I think the MTBF is: MTBF = 3*20,000 / 1 = 60,000 FH. MTBUR = 3*20,000 / 2 = 30,000 FH. Could you please confirm if I'm right or not (and give to me the correct way to calculate it)

We now conduct burn-in on board level for 24 hours, but we think the burn-in condicitons and duration may be different for various types of part, board, and system. Are there any references or standards on this? Thanks.

Subject: Reliability Data on a bladder for hydraulic fluid
We are looking for any information on reliability data of a bladder for a hydraulic reservoir. This is in concept phase so the exact material and properties are unknown. If anyone has any suggestions for bladder material and other physical characteristics please advise. Pressure is expected to be 0 - 500 psig, temperature is expected to be between 0 and 35C. Thanks in advance.

Can somebody point me to good reference (or better still a website) that goes through some sparing estimations based on equipment MTBF and mission times ?
Thanks in advance. Richard.
