In engineering practice, chaotic oscillations are often observed which disappear suddenly. This phenomenon is often referred to as transient chaos. The life expectancy of these oscillations varies stochastically. In this work, a method is presented for the simple estimation of the expected length of the chaotic behaviour. As an example, the Lorenz system is considered at some specific parameter values.
