Title

The Effects of Melt History on the Failure Characteristics of Pristine Glass Fibres

Abstract

The failure strains (εf) of silicate glass fibres drawn from melts with different thermal histories have been characterised using the two-point bend (TPB) technique. Narrow distributions, with Weibull parameters m>100, result from well conditioned melts, and distributions broaden (m decreases) when melt temperatures approach the liquidus temperature. These results indicate that the TPB technique is sensitive to the presence of strength limiting heterogeneities in glass.
