Abstract : The influence of temperature on the room temperature strength of glass fibres was studied. Samples of fibres were heated at various temperatures in the range 150 to 550 F and in 2 types of atmosphere, one inert and the other normal air. A reduction in strength was first detected for fibres annealed at 270 to 300 F, this reduction increasing wit increasing temperature. Statistical tests were applied to the data to determine the significance o the reduction. No significant difference was found between fibres annealed in the inert atmosphere and ibres annealed in air. (A UTHOR)
