A graph $(G)$ is conditional $(k)$-edge-fault Hamiltonian if it remains Hamiltonian after deleting at most $(k)$ edges and each vertex incident to at least two nonfaulty edges. A graph $(G)$ is $(k)$-edge-fault Hamiltonian-connected if it remains Hamiltonian-connected after deleting at most $(k)$ edges. This study shows that the conditional edge-fault Hamiltonicity of the Cartesian product network $(G\times H)$ can be efficiently evaluated given two graphs $(G)$ and $(H)$ that are edge-fault Hamilton-connected and conditional edge-fault Hamiltonian. This study uses the result to evaluate the conditional edge-fault Hamiltonicity of two multiprocessor systems, the generalized hypercubes and the nearest neighbor mesh hypercubes, both of which belong to Cartesian product networks.
