Generalised relations between the strength distribution function and derivatives of the fracture probability have been obtained for cylindrical specimens tested in 3—point bending. The derived relations have been used to evaluate the probability of failure during dynamic loading using a fracture mechanics approach. The theoretical and experimental results indicate that subcritical flaw growth during loading causes the strength degradation and the failure probabilities in impact test can be used to determine ‘safe working stress’ for the application of glass as a structural component.
