The strength distributions of silicon carbide and alumina fibres have been evaluated using a modified Weibull distribution function. The function provides an upper and lower strength limit and is characterized by two shape and location parameters. The sum of squares was used as a measure of fit between the distribution function and the data. The result showed good agreement between the two. In addition, the strength distribution and the average value at a different gauge length were extrapolated from the parameters estimated at the original gauge length. In this case also, the proposed function accurately predicted the data points.
