    Chain link strength knowing the failure strength of several chains

    I ran some materials tests earlier today, and this is the most basic way to describe my problem:

    I have n chains, each with x links on them. If I test each of the n chains to failure. Only the failure strength is recorded. How can I predict the mean failure strength of each chain link?


    Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!

    You would have to test each link individually.

    You could run tests in groups of x links. This could help you.
