German term or phrase: L10-Lebensdauer
L10 stands for a method of calculating the life time of parts - as far as I understood, it is the time after which 10 % of all parts of this type have failed. This value is needed to calculate the MTBF - mean time between failures. Is this method also employed in other counries than Germany? Is it also called L10, and if not...what methods are employed and what are they called?? Thanx!

English translation:L10 life hours; L10 basic rating life; L10 specification
Explanation:
Since L10 is described as DIn standard it is reasonable to assume that, like other DIN standards, it's used outside German: Lebensdauer-Diagramme …Eingezeichnet wird sowohl die Kurve für >>die Lebensdauer L10 nach DIN, als auch für die erweiterte Lebensdauer L10a.<<
http://www.hexagon.de/lg1_d.htm ; http://www.pabst.de/papst/papstinfo.html--- The term also appears in English Web pages in the same context: >>The extension of the Basic Rating Life Equation, (L10 = (C/P)p), which takes the fatigue load limit and several other factors related to lubrication and contamination into account.<<
http://www.skf.com/dictonary/words.html --- >>Reliability specifications The L10 specification states that less than 10% of a statistically significant number of fans should fail during 80,000 hours continuous operation at 40°C. <<http://www.papstplc.com/articles/art002.html ---
>>For example, shaft bearings are especially susceptible to high overhung load. Bearings are designed for specific L10 life hours<<

L10 of course also has other meanings ranging from noise levels to Bestellnummern.
