I. INTRODUCTION

redundancy. Suppose that n components are linearly (circularly)

connected in such a way that the system fails if and only if at

least k consecutive components fail. The C(k, n :F) system (both

linear and circular) include the series and the parallel systems as

special cases. For example, when k=n the linear and circular C(k,

n :F) system becomes the series system, and when k=1, the linear

and circular C(k, n :F) system becomes the parallel system. The

problem of evaluating the reliability of the C(k, n:F) system has

been the subject of many paper [1-5]. Though various studies of

the C(k, n:F) system structure, have been reported in the

literature, little attention has been paid to such systems that are

repairable [6-10]. consecutive system. Sharifi and Moosakhani

[12] works on a system with two element with constant and

increasable fuzzy. Study a repairable consecutive-k-out-of-n:F

system with fuzzy states introduced by Guan and Yueqin [13].

El-Damcese and Temraz [14] use a model for a k-out-of-n: F

system that consists of n independent and identical components

connected in parallel using non-homogeneous/ homogeneous

continuous-time Markov chain.

the availability model for a linear (circular) C(k, n:F) system of

non-identical components. An analysis of the life time and the

repair time of the each component follow Rayleigh distribution.

Fuzzy rates are used to model the uncertainty in the system

VII. CONCLUSION

Consecutive-k-out-of-n system models have been proposed

for system availability evaluation and the design of integrated

circuits, microwave relay stations in telecommunications, oil

pipeline systems, vacuum systems in accelerators, computer ring

networks (k loop), and spacecraft relay stations. Such systems

are characterized by logical or physical connections among

components in lines or circles.

In this paper presents a model for the availability of linear

(circular) C(k,n:F) system of independent and non- identical

components. The estimated parameters of the Rayleigh

distribution of the proposed model are fuzzy and all the fuzzy

numbers have triangular membership functions. Fuzzy rates are

used to model the uncertainty in the availability system. This

paper includes a numerical example to illustrate the model.
