  • Since the classic paper of A. A. Griffith in 1920, questions have been asked about the variability of the strength of glass fibers as a function of composition and processing conditions. While Griffith apparently found that the strength of soda-lime-silica fibers increased as their diameter decreased, he also found that quite large-diameter silica fibers had strengths of the order of 6.9 GPa (1 X 106 psi). Since that time, almost all investigators have found very similar strength values for… CONTINUE READING
