The aim of this paper is to develop a probabilistic approach for predicting the tensile strength behavior of a glass fiber reinforced polyamide. In the present study, the reliability of tensile strength is proposed based on the developed mathematical models, in which three factors with three levels are implemented. Glass fiber content, temperature and strain rate are chosen as the main input parameters in this study. The tensile strength is considered as output response which is evaluated through experimental tests. The “Strength-Load” method with Monte Carlo simulation is implemented for computing the tensile strength reliability. The proposed approach leads to predict useful the tensile strength behavior for different parameters. In addition, a sensitivity analysis of some input parameters on the reliability is discussed. This method has been also used to analyze and discuss the influence of the dispersions of the glass fiber content and the temperature of a glass fiber reinforced polyamide.
