Title:Statistical study of factors influencing strength of glass fibers
Author(s):Wallhaus, Robert Arthur
Glass Fibers
Abstract:A statistical concept is investigated for the purpose of describing the breaking strengths of glass fibers. The parameters of the Weibull distribution function are calculated and used to study the effects of time, static load, humidity, annealing, and various degrees of mechanical damage on the fracture strength of glass fibers and fiber bundles. The breaking strength of a bundle of glass fibers is analyzed by use of the proposed statistical distribution, and the results predicted by this analysis are compared with experimentally determined values of ultimate bundle strength.
