In reliability theory, various shock models were de_ned and treated by many researchers. In the _rst
part, we use a shock model to obtain the reliability function of consecutve-k-out-of-n systems with
dependent and nonidentical components. In the second part, we treat some numerical examples to
show the derive results and deduce the failure rate of each component and the system.
