Part 1-31: Measurement methods and test procedures – Tensile strength

This part of IEC 60793 provides values of the tensile strenght of optical fibre samples and establishes uniform requirements fort he mechanical characteristic - tensile strength. The method tests individual lengths of uncabled and unbundled glass optical fibre. Sections of fibre are broken with controlled increasing stress or strain that is uniform over the entire fibre length and cross section. The stress or strain is increased at a nominally constant rate until breakage occurs.
