On estimating the Weibull modulus for a brittle material
- 516 Downloads
Common methods of estimating the Weibull modulus are surveyed. Computer simulation is used to obtain the statistical properties of different estimators. Most estimators are shown to be biased and their respective adjustment factors, for a range of experimentally feasible sample sizes, are given.
