Abstract: The high randomness of decay level in a natural environment connected with material characteristics suggests to consider the deterioration process as a stochastic process and to analyse it as a reliability problem. Under this point of view, for the system considered, the failure probability function Pdt) has to be defined. A possible approach to define if is proposed by the authors. This approach is able to give information on the deterioration process of the system over time and to predict ifs senlice life. The eficiency of the approach has been tested on laboratoty samples and on on-site real wall. The results are presented.
