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.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
