Abstract
Prooftesting optical fiber is required to assure a minimum strength over all lengths of fiber. This is done as the fiber is wound onto a spool by applying a tensile stress over a length of fiber as it passes a stress region. The failure of weak flaws assures a minimum strength of lengths that survive the test. Flaw growth is assumed to follow the power law. Distributions of initial flaw size are assumed to be of the Weibull type. Experimental data are presented to validate these assumptions.
