Rod survived without fracture!

The data from your simulation are shown on the usual
Weibull plot:

Drag the boxes at the ends of the line to estimate the gradient, which should be equal to the Weibull modulus.

There are two main sources of error, the location of
the fracture is not always at the centre point and force is increased
by discrete amounts.

How will this affect the estimate of the strength of the materials?
