Failure studies of glass fibers
"When glass melts were prepared to ensure homogeneity, the failure properties were shown to be sensitive to glass composition and structure and the reproducibility of the failure data was less than for a variety of diffirent silicate glass compositions. Fibers have also been aged under controlled humidity and temperature conditions to characterize the effects of aging time on the failure strain. With the ability to produce and test high quality fiber, a new failure property of glass has been observed...With the ability to determine the intrinsic (flaw-free) failure properties of glass and the dependence of these properties on testing rate, a new insight to the understanding of glass failure and strength with relation to composition and structure may be possible"--Abstract, leaf iv.
