A Review of the Weibull Distribution and Selected Engineering Applications 1999-01-2859

The Weibull distribution is a widely used statistical model for studying fatigue and endurance life in engineering devices and materials. Many examples can be found among the aerospace, electronics, materials, and automotive industries. Recent advances in Weibull theory have also created numerous specialized Weibull applications. Modern computing technology has made many of these techniques accessible across the engineering spectrum. The purpose of this paper is to give a brief expository review of the Weibull distribution with a discussion and illustration of some of the more popular Weibull techniques. A short list of resources taken from the literature of Weibull analysis is also included.
