A simple, esy-to-use and physically meaningful analytical model is developed for the evaluation of the critical (Euler) force for a dual-coated fiber-optic connector. The obtained results can be used in the analysis and physical (mechanical) design of connectors of the type in question. The general concepts are illustrated by a practical numerical example.
