This paper further develops the conventional Weibull/weakest-link model by incorporating the within-fiber diameter variation. This is necessary for fibers with considerable geometrical irregularities, such as the wool and other animal fibers. The strength of wool fibers has been verified to follow this modified Weibull/weakest-link distribution. In addition, the modified Weibull model can predict the gauge length effect more accurately than the conventional model.
