Statistical Intervals for a Single Sample
Engineers are often involved in estimating parameters. For example, there is an ASTM Standard E23 that defines a technique called the Charpy V-notch method for notched bar impact testing of metallic materials. The impact energy is often used to determine whether the material experiences a ductile-to-brittle transition as the temperature decreases. Suppose that we have tested a sample of 10 specimens of a ...
