A Study on Statistical Nature of CFRP Strength Data Kim, Seon-Jin; Lee, Sang-Guk; Nam, Ki-Woo; Oh, Sae-Kyoo;
An investigation was conducted to study the statistical nature of tensile strength and static fracture toughness of carbon fiber reinforced plastics(CFRP) materials. A good understanding of statistical aspects of strength data is essential for the successful application of such materials because these composites unpossess material uniformity as compared with conventional metallic materials. In this paper, a statistical approach based on Weibull distribution was applied to the test data to evaluate the dispersion in the tensile strength and static fracture toughness by the change of stacking method and test temparature of the CFRP materials.
