The creep rupture of aramid fibre yarns (Twaron 1000 and Kevlar 29) was studied experimentally at different temperatures. The failure stress and strain data were analysed by statistical techniques. The reliability analysis, including extraction of Weibull parameters and distribution estimation, allows useful conclusions on the long term creep rupture behaviour of aramid fibre yarns, mainly on the properties variability and on temperature influence. © 2010 Maney Publishing.
