A variety of simple analytical models for increasing, decreasing and "bath tub"-type failure rates are discussed. The purpose of this thesis is to develop analytical hazard representations for use in reliability and maintainability studies, and to evaluate them in use for data analysis. Verification of the model was accomplished by computer simulation. They were applied to human mortality and other failure time data.
