Paper Abstract

Using Two-Point Bending and Tensile tests in commercial optical fibers it was found that strength results are connected. Because of that connection many fractures cannot be explained assuming isolated defects. Other explanations are proposed in terms of a family of defects spread in length and superficial stress areas originated during manufacture.
