It is shown that tensile strength of cellulose fibers with the same length follow Weibull distribution. However, size effect predicted by the Weibull distribution for fibers with various lengths is not observed. This is most likely due to the highly non-linear behaviour of cellulose fibers. Applicability of the Weibull distribution is studied on fibers with different length via single fiber as well as bundle tensile tests.
