    Abstract

    The “equal rank” assumption is commonly used to statistically relate the tensile strength and fatigue life of specimens made from fibrous composite materials [1–4]. It implies that a specimen in a given population has the same rank in the static-strength distribution as it does in the fatigue-life distribution. This assumption has been shown to be generally valid for unidirectional graphite/epoxy composites subjected to static tension and tensile fatigue loadings [5].
