A linear (circular) consecutive-k-out-of-n:F system consists of n components ordered on a line (circle). Each component and the system have two states: good or failed. The system fails if and only if at least k consecutive components fail. The reliability of such systems is computed. The most general case is examined without any restriction on the components
