Fuzzy-evidence approach to uncertainty modelling and reliability

Conventional approach to mathematical description of experiments applies probability theory. Here, another approach is used to express uncertainty based on probability, fuzzy sets, and evidence theory. The paper presents a new reliability model of an element working in different environmental and stress conditions. Fuzzy and probability descriptions are combined together using evidence theory to describe failure rate of an element. The method presented in the paper is more general, not limited to reliability problems only.
