This is the third paper in a series relating to stochastic methods in mechanical design. The two previous ones were entitled, “Some Property Data and Corresponding Weibull Parameters for Stochastic Mechanical Design,” and “Fitting Weibull Strength Data and Applying it to Stochastic Mechanical Design.” They presented the groundwork for addressing stochastic problems in machinery design to a reliability goal when strength data are sparse. The purpose of this paper is to utilize procedures for estimating reliability of machine elements when yielding, fracture, or distortion are the limiting or active constraints.
