Crack-growth analysis of fiber-optic cables proves occurrence of stress-corrosion. The effect of external environment on stress-corrosion rate is showed clearly in the Charles and Charles and Hillig theory. Their models were assumed to be essential for investigations described in the following paper. From the dynamic fatigue measurements, dependence of static time-to-failure on failure probability was determined. Results were compared with direct static fatigue measurements. Satisfactory conformity was obtained in mentioned comparison.
