Abstract
Static fatigue of bare indented fibers in different environments was studied. It was found that the n-value in different pH-solutions did not significantly change and was higher than that for strong fibers and lower than that for bulk samples in similar conditions. All lifetime reduction with a pH increase was due to a change of the B-value. The results obtained were used for evaluation of the lifetime of weak fibers for different service environments.
