Abstract : The scatter of experimental data obtained in an investigation of the parameters of structural components is of vital importance for the design process. The extent of scattering is particularly large for strength parameters which are determined by the resin or. the adhesion between fiber and resin. An investigation was therefore conducted regarding the causes of the scatter of the experimental values. Attention is given to an evaluation of the scatter, the scatter and the statistical characteristics of the mechanical parameters af carbon-fiber composites' (CFC), and the possibilities which' exist to reduce this scatter. It is found that quality control tests with respect to fiber and resin are important for such a reduction.
