The purpose of this paper is to investigate age replacement policies for two-component parallel system with stochastic dependence. The stochastic dependence considered, is modeled by a one-sided domino effect. The failure of component 1 at instant t may induce the failure of component 2 at instant t+τ with probability p 1→2. The time delay τ is a random variable with known probability density function h p 1→2 (.). The system is considered in a failed state when both components are failed. The proposed replacement policies suggest to replace the system upon failure or at age T whichever occurs first.
In the first policy, costs and durations associated with maintenance activities are supposed to be constant. In the second replacement policy, the preventive replacement cost depends on the system’s state and age. The expected cost per unit of time over an infinite span is derived and numerical examples are presented.
In this paper and especially in the second policy, the authors find that the authors can get a more economical policy if the authors consider that the preventive replacement cost is not constant but depends on T.
In this paper, the authors take into account of the stochastic dependence between system components. This dependence affects the global reliability of the system and replacement’s periodicity. It can be used to measure the performance of the system et introduced into design phase of the system.

Corrosion and corrosion inhibition of alloyed zinc electrode were investigated in neutral chloride solution using electrochemical techniques. The purpose of this study is to study the corrosion inhibition of acetanilide and para hydroxy acetanilide as organics inhibitors for corrosion control of alloyed zinc electrode in NaCl 3 per cent solution.
A volt lab PGZ 301, assembled using alloyed zinc working electrode, a platinum counter electrode and a saturated calomel electrode as the reference electrode, was used in the experiment. This research was conducted using potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy techniques.
Acetanilide, para hydroxy acetanilide and their mixture provided inhibitions efficiencies of 88 per cent at 40 ppm, 87 per cent with 80 ppm and 99.86 per cent with (40 ppm AC + 80 ppm PHA), respectively. The study also discusses the corrosion inhibition mechanism of the protective layers. The adsorption of acetanilide and para hydroxy acetanilide on metal surface obeyed Langmuir’s adsorption isotherm. Polarization measurements showed that the acetanilide and the para hydroxy acetanilide, and their mixture acted as cathodic inhibitors in NaCl solution, and the inhibitor molecules followed physical adsorption on the surface of alloyed zinc.
The other new inhibitors which are very efficient inhibitors and to be applied in the field of prevention and control against corrosion.
