Abstract : Tensile strength measurements were conducted on six different lengths of Owens-Corning X-994 glass fibers separated from a single strand. Analogous measurements were made on the individual strand. The length effect on breaking strength, and the mechanical damage coefficient, alpha, were determined for both single fibers and strand. Results confirmed the validity of the alpha concept for the length range tested. Correlation was found between the two test series. Revised E-glass data are appended. (Author)
