The reduction of the expected lifetime of a temperature-sensitive viscoelastic von Mises truss caused by small random temperature fluctuations is calculated, assuming the probability density of the temperature process to be a known (symmetric) function. Results are derived for a normal and a rectangular probability distribution of the temperature fluctuations.
