Abstract : The applicability of standard mathematical techniques for analysis of reliability of components exposed to a radiation environment is presented. The sensitivity of failure-distribution functions, data-presentation techniques, statistical parameters, and types of measurements to practical analysis methods is demonstrated. With the insight gained from the analysis methods, a research and development program was designed to establish qualified test procedures for long-term nucleardevelopment techniques. In addition, the lack of practical standard test techniques is substantiated and standard data-reporting methods are recommended.
