Abstract: In this study, the fracture strength of a carbon-epoxy composite plate has been statistically analysed by Weibull distribution. Nineteen tension tests were carried out. The results obtained vary between 439 MPa and 552 MPa. Using Weibull distribution, the materials' reliability, in other words, the probability distribution according to which the material will fail was obtained.
