Table 13 shows the best fit of conversion to second refrigerators for a Weibull distribution. The best-fit Weibull parameters are [alpha] = 53.5, [beta] = 1.83, and [phi] = 0.049.
It should be noted that the Weibull distribution simply allows the use of these acceleration factors (see Kline, J.P.
The conservative strengths obtained using the Weibull distribution model are consistent with results reported by Kam and Chang (1997) and Alqam et al.
* The total amount of seeds produced per plant at each location has a right skewed distribution, which in each case is closely approximated by a Weibull distribution with shape parameter less than one.
Weibull distribution, which is fit for the broad and dispersive distribution of microhardness for brittle ceramic material, was used to analyze microhardness values of TiN-matrix coating.
A certain dependence of the parameters of the Weibull distribution of wind speeds on the threshold for calm situations is natural; however, it is probably not a simple coincidence that the shape parameter is close to two when the treatment of calm situations matches that in the traditional recording schemes with a resolution of 0.5 m/s.
The strain recorded during this process ([[epsilon].sub.r]) can be modeled via the Weibull distribution function as [12, 21]:
To the best of the author's knowledge, no one has developed any inventory model considering fuzzy cycle time with selling price dependent demand rate where deterioration rate follows weibull distribution.
This paper proposes a novel method based on information geometry for estimating the two-parameter Weibull distribution function.
Using Minitab, I generated 1,000 rows of random data using a Weibull distribution (shape = 1, scale = 100, threshold = 10), I somewhat arbitrarily chose 0 and 400 for spec limits.
Weibull distribution function, which is common in the calculation of wind energy potential, is used in this study.
