Subject: MIL-HDBK-217 Prediction Models
The front section 4 of MIL-HDBK-217 identifies the limitations of the reliability prediction models: "... none of the models in this handbook predict nuclear survivability or the effects of ionizing radiation." I am interested in any information pertaining to prediction models for resistors, capacitors, and diodes that are used in an ionized gas environment created by nucleating particles.

One source of reliability data on components used in a nuclear environment is the IEEE Std 500. This document, which is old 1983, contain data collected on parts exposed to radiation conditions, high temperatures and high humidity levels.
