Paper Abstract

An experimental methodology is presented for determining the allowable design stress on an optical fiber in service. The design stress must allow adequate static fatigue lifetime at high reliability. The experimental methodology and data analysis presented here have been used to successfully model static fatigue behavior in a wide range of environments in tests of up to 44 months duration.
