    Abstract

    The strength of high-performance filaments is a complex parameter which can not be fully described with a single value. The Weibull model is used to describe the intrinsic statistical nature of the fracture strength. Possibilities and limitations of the Weibull model are illustrated. The relationship between material properties and the parameters in the Weibull model is discussed.
