On Characteristics of Weibull Distribution Parameters of Fatigue Crack Growth Lives
This paper illustrates the characteristics of parameters for three-parameter Weibull probability distribution of fatigue crack growth lives under constant stress intensity factor control experiments. Applying the statistical properties of the previous experimental results, the fatigue crack curves were simulated by using the non-Gaussian random fields simulation method and analyzed for the different specimen thickness and stress intensity level to determine the probability distributions of the fatigue crack growth life.
