I am trying to answer the following question :

Why there might be significant scatter in the fracture strength for some given ceramic material and why fracture strength increases with decreasing specimen size ?

any input qwould be appreciated.

Ceramic material is not very uniform.
In a small sample there is less chance of having a microscopic crack.

Aburr , is there any equation ( i guess with the size in the denominator) that shows that as the denominator decreases the result increases ?

"is there any equation"
no. There are too many different kinds of ceramic.
The ceramic for cooking pots is quite different from the ceramic on heat shield tiles for the shuttle.

you could try
strength = k*(1 + c*e^(-size))
On the other hand it probably is not worth the effort to use that equation.

In materials lab mixing and curing concrete under ideal conditions shows that the breaking strength of samples varies widely.  I couldn't have been more amazed when I took this class.  I would be surprised if ceramics are more uniform.
