The effect of flaw size distribution on the estimation of POD
This paper presents an alternative approach that is based on a Rayleigh distribution of flaw sizes on a log scale covering the whole range of flaws of potential interest. The use of this approach can increase the accuracy of the POD estimate by optimally distributing flaw sizes in the range of minimum and maximum flaw sizes.
