J. Mech. Des 114(1), 42-47 (Mar 01, 1992) (6 pages) doi:10.1115/1.2916923 History: Received February 01, 1991; Online June 02, 2008


This is the third paper in a series relating to stochastic methods in mechanical design. The two previous ones were entitled, “Some Property Data and Corresponding Weibull Parameters for Stochastic Mechanical Design,” and “Fitting Weibull Strength Data and Applying it to Stochastic Mechanical Design.” They presented the groundwork for addressing stochastic problems in machinery design to a reliability goal when strength data are sparse. The purpose of this paper is to utilize procedures for estimating reliability of machine elements when yielding, fracture, or distortion are the limiting or active constraints.
