Abstract: This paper considers a network where nodes are connected randomly and can fail at random times. The critical-node test detects nodes, whose failures are malicious behavior, disconnects or significantly degrades the performance of the network. The critical node is an element, position or control entity whose disruption, is immediately degrades the ability of a force to command, control or effectively conducts combat operations. If a node is critical node, then more attention must be paid to it to avoid its failure or removal of a network. So how to confirm critical nodes in the ad hoc network is the premise to predict the network partition. A critical node is the most important node within the entity of a network. This paper suggests methods that find the critical nodes of a network based on residual battery power, reliability, bandwidth, availability and service traffic type. The metrics for evaluation has been considered as packet delivery ratio, end-to-end delay and throughput.
