Paper Abstract

In this paper we present the results of computational studies on a set of experimental data concerning the strength of commercially available silica optical fibers. We compare various statistical methods for characterizing the distribution of fiber strength and assess their validity by comparing random sampling from a set of experimental data with results generated using a Monte Carlo computer routine.
