Abstract
Exploratory studies were conducted to determine the factors responsible for possible flexibility problems in glass fiber optics. Commercial glass fiber optic materials of known composition were employed. Such mechanical properties as tensile strength and modulus, Poisson's ratio and fatigue were measured. Single and multi-fiber materials were compared.
