Simulation-Based Maximum Likelihood Median Pragmatic -Basis and -Basis Statistical Tolerance Limits Given Fatigue Datum Values with No Censoring or with Potential or Actual Type Censoring



This technical note introduces the author’s simulation-based maximum likelihood median pragmatic A-basis or B-basis statistical tolerance limit calculation methodology. It presents websites that provide exemplar outputs of microcomputer programs that employ this methodology to compute these statistical tolerance limits given (i) replicate Weibull and loge-normal fatigue life datum values pertaining to a material without an endurance limit and (ii) s-N data with either linear and quadratic models pertaining to a material without an endurance limit or with a two-segment straight-line model pertaining to a material with an endurance limit.
