Abstract
The cyclic fatigue behaviour of a set of light guiding glass rods is studied and the results are compared to data of soda lime glass rods.The rods were excited uniaxially in a high frequency (ultrasonic) system. A statistical staircase method is described and was used to compare the strengths of the soda lime and light guiding rods.Residual stresses in the light guides were determined from fractographic measurements and their possible influence on the observed lower strenght of the light guides is discussed.
