dc.description.abstractOne hundred tensile tests were undertaken at each of five distinct fibre lengths (6, 10, 20, 30 and 50 mm) on a single batch of jute fibres from South Asia. The Young's moduli were found to be independent of length. The ultimate stress (fracture strength) and fracture strains were found to decrease with increasing fibre length. The variation in mechanical properties at each fibre length was characterised using Weibull statistics based on a maximum likelihood estimate; referred to as point estimates. Two empirical based models (a linear and a natural logarithmic interpolation model) have been developed to estimate the fracture properties at any length between 6 and 50 mm. These two interpolation models were also developed based on maximum likelihood estimates. The point estimates were used to benchmark the performance of the two models. The natural logarithmic model was found to be superior to the linear model.
