Abstract:

Long silica fibers were drawn and coated in-line with polyethylene. The strength of specimens from 0.05 to 11.96 meters was measured, and the strength distribution of 119 specimens, 1.06 meters long, was also measured. Three methods of estimating the parameters of the Weibull statistical distribution are compared, and the influence of bimodal populations on the shape of an assumed Weibull distribution is demonstrated and applied to the test sample of 119 silica fibers.
