Abstract
The optical fiber cable, during its installation and operation is subjected to strong tensile forces. Cables are tested by measuring its optical fiber elongation caused by tensile forces. However, elongation measurement by optical methods is burden with a systematic error caused by the photo-elastic effect. In other words as `optical' elongation is different than mechanical one. The effect can be compensated if the correction factor K is known. In the paper the results of optical and mechanical measurements of different single-mode fibers are presented as well as determined correction factor values. Also references to other publications were made.
