Abstract : Failure distribution model and reliability function are derived for the B-58 tire. The model results in a combined chance failure (exponential) and wearout (normal) failure distribution. The method used is general and may be applied to any aircraft tire. The areas of contractual specification, inspection procedures, and reporting of failures are analysed. An operating characteristic curve for the acceptance sampling plan is constructed, showing the plan offers little protection for the consumer. A plan from MIL-STD-414 is selected and recommended. Deficiencies are found to exist in the reliability demonstration method and the are of failure data collection. (Author)
