Load-sharing systems arise in several real-life situations. Some of them have been described below. Several models proposed in the literature for load-sharing systems are studied. The emphasis is on parametric estimation and testing and nonparametric estimation of system life distributions under equal and monotone load-sharing rules. Data sets that describe load-sharing systems have been described. A few probabilistic results are stated for completeness.
- load sharing;
- parallel systems;
- m-out-of-k systems;
- failure rate function;
- system reliability;
- dynamic modeling
