Paper Abstract

It is known that silica fiber strength and fatigue are sensitive to such environmental parameters as humidity and pH. However, there is no complete understanding of the mechanisms of their action. For this reason, static fatigue measurements with pH-value being controlled were performed. The results are interpreted in terms of activation of water molecules by OH- groups.
