Coverage probability of tolerance levels
In this thesis the ideas of the tolerance limit and coverage probabilities are explored in the context of the A-basis and B-basis for composite materials. The breaking strength of composite materials are random variables that require the percentiles of the random variable to estimate. The thesis will explore the use of point estimators and then one-sided con dence intervals as appropriate estimators. It will then look at the A-basis and B-Basis in an ANOVA setting. Finally, with a numerical example, it will explore the coverage probability of the A-basis and B-basis as a design method parameter.
