Abstract : Glass fiber drawing facilities and apparatus for measuring the physical properties of these fibers have been assembled at NOL for research and development purposes. The fiber drawing facilities include a small wire wound furnace for preliminary studies and a high amperage furnace for longer ranged research programs, such as a study of the effect of finishes on the strength of glass-resin composites. Measurement facilities are provided for determining the following properties of glass fibers: diameter, density, tensile strength, and modulus of elasticity. Alternative methods for measuring diameter and density are also given. (Author)
