This paper analyzes the stability, uniformly stability, asymptotically stability, boundedness, uniformly boundedness and square integrability of solutions of a system of differential equations of second order with variable delay by applying the direct method of Lyapunov- Krasovskii. By means of a new Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, we simplify and extend some previous work that is found in the recent literature. Finally, the validity and applicability of the proceeded results are indicated by some numerical examples applying MATLAB-Simulink. By the results of this paper, we can obtain the results of Omeike et al. [Stability and boundedness of solutions of certain vector delay differential equations. J Nigerian Math Soc. 2018;37(2):77-87], Theorem 1.1 and Theorem 1.2, under weaker conditions. In addition, we establish two new results on the uniformly stability and integrabilty of solutions the considered equation. Finally, in particular cases, the applicability of the results of this paper can be shown by two new examples. These are the contribution of this paper to the subject and the relevant literature.
