1 February 1992 Thermal viscoelastic simulation model for tapering of laser-heated fused silica fiber
Author Affiliations +
Abstract
A computer simulation model represents the processes of heating a fused silica fiber and drawing it to form a taper. The model is a transient thermal and visco-elastic representation of an axial string of nodes that respond to laser heating and drawing in vacuum chucks. Preliminary sample simulation results are shown.
