Paper Abstract

The effect of using the multi-region crack growth model on the fiber lifetime prediction in an optical communication system is discussed. The weak flaw statistics model is compared with the safe stress model for mechanical reliability of optical fibers. Problems to be solved before putting the safe stress model into practice are analyzed.
