[Frederic A Holland; Erwin V Zaretsky; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. The fracture strengths of two large batches of AT6 cast aluminum coupon specimens were compared by using two-parameter Weibull analysis.

The minimum number of these specimens necessary to find the fracture strength of the material was : Jr. Holland and E. Zaretsky. The fracture strengths of two large batches of AT6 cast aluminum coupon specimens were compared by using two-parameter Weibull analysis.

The minimum number of these specimens necessary to find the fracture strength of the material was determined. The Weibull statistical fracture theory is widely applied to the fracture of ceramic materials. The foundations of the Weibull theory for brittle fracture are reviewed.

This theory predicts that brittle fracture strength is a function of size, stress distribution, and stress state. Experimental multiaxial loading results for A1 2 O 3 tubes are compared to the stress state predictions of the Weibull by: This paper presents an analysis of Weibull statistics applied to tensile failure of soil grains compressed between flat platens.

The aim is to validate the use of Weibull applied to single soil grains, since such a statistical approach can then be used to analyse particle survival in Cited by: The fit of fracture strength data of brittle materials (Si(3)N(4), SiC, and ZnO) to the Weibull and normal distributions is compared in terms of the Akaike information criterion.

Using bimodal and three-parameter Weibull analysis, the Weibull modulus m 1 and threshold rl1 at lower strength level are and MPa, respectively, suggesting a modest reliability. One should exercise caution, therefore, in interpreting the reliability of as-cast BMG materials only simply in terms of the compression tests, small-sized samples.

This paper reviews Weibull statistics in order to facilitate informed decisions regarding practical use of the analysis as it applies to dental material strength testing. Weibull statistics are commonly used in the engineering community, but to a somewhat lesser extent in the dental field where applicability has been questioned [1,2].

A possible confusing factor is that Waloddi Weibull originally presented his analyses Cited by: As a result of the analysis the probability of fracture in a microchip can now be assessed and used for further quality assurance purposes. The paper will start with a brief introduction to Weibull theory and present the 3-Point-Bending (3PB) experiments that were used to obtain the Weibull File Size: 1MB.

The Weibull modulus of the sample (containing 30 tests) is m = 15 and the corresponding material parameter r = The lowest measured strength value is σ f = MPa and the highest is σ f = MPa. With K Ic = MPa m 1/2 (determined using the SEVNB method,) and using Y = 2/π (the geometric factor of a small penny shaped volume crack) the size of the fracture origin can be determined Cited by: observations by showing that the Weibull distribution is unstable in the renormalization-group sense for quasibrittle materials and, thus, not applicable at long length scales.

In deriving the Weibull distribution of fracture strengths, it is invariably assumed that the material volume has a population of noninteracting cracklike defects, and fracture. Abstract. The fracture toughness, of a cortical bone has been experimentally determined by several variation of values occurs from the variation of specimen orientation, shape, and size during the experiment.

The fracture toughness of a cortical bone is governed by the severest flaw and, hence, may be analyzed using Weibull by: 6. The Weibull analysis can provide reasonable probability analysis and be used to analyze fracture strength and other properties of composite materials[10] [11].

This is also meaningful to. Moreover, the fatigue fracture behavior of aluminum castings is well described by Weibull statistics. Crack originating from different defects (such as porosity and oxide films) can be readily identified from the Weibull modulus and the characteristic fatigue life.

Compared with oxide films, porosity is more detrimental to fatigue by: An Application of Weibull Analysis to Determine Failure Rates in Automotive Components Jingshu Wu, PhD, PE, Stephen McHenry, Jeffrey Quandt National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) U.S.

Is Weibull Distribution the Most Appropriate Statistical Strength Distribution for Brittle Materials. Bikramjit Basu1, Devesh Tiwari2, Debasis Kundu3 and Rajesh Prasad1 Abstract Strength reliability, one of the critical factors restricting wider use of brittle materials in various structural applications, is commonly characterized by Weibull.

According to Weibull [1] the rate λ(s) can be approximated by a power rule model written as 0 0 1 ⎛⎞ = ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ bs * s, V s λ (5) where * and b s0 s are the Weibull scale and shape parameters, respectively.

Introducing equation (5) into equation (4) enables the probability of survival to be written as a two-parameter Weibull. This book is a very good introduction to Weibull Analysis.

The only drawback is that the examples are tied to WeibullSmith software. I would have preferred to see worked out examples, or ones using a more commonly available statistics package, like Minitab/5(17).

The Weibull modulus is a dimensionless parameter of the Weibull distribution which is used to describe variability in measured material strength of brittle materials.

For ceramics and other brittle materials, the maximum stress that a sample can be measured to withstand before failure may vary from specimen to specimen, even under identical testing conditions.

Although Weibull statistics have been widely used to describe the scatter in strength and fracture toughness of brittle materials, (e.g. Freudenthal, ; Evans, ), the Weibull stress was ﬁrst proposed as a micromechanics parameter by the Beremin group (). The types of casting alloys that were the subjects f these investigations include gray iron, ductile iron, cast steel, and aluminum-base alloys (A, A, and ).
