Paper Abstract

This tutorial paper explains the maximum likelihood method for Weibull analysis of mechanical strength of ceramic materials and how strength scales with area under stress. Weibull parameters for a variety of infrared window materials are presented. Calculation of the Weibull static probability of survival is illustrated.
