Glass fibers of high silica content, such as common optical lightguides, exhibit a nonlinear elastic response, becoming stiffer with increasing tensile stress. The nonlinear behavior may be of importance in certain sensing application, in particular stress and load monitoring, and in constructing correct models for these optical fiber-based sensor systems. The objectives of the current study is to investigate the nonlinear constitutive behavior of high-silica optical fibers and to determine the…
