Abstract : An investigation was made of a continuous processes for the production of metallic filaments by the application of a glass fiber forming technique wherein a metallic filament is formed as a core material in a metal-glass coaxial composite fiber. The work thus far has been limited to the investigation of beryllium as the core metal. Attempts were made to produce beryllium core fibers by the dual furnace technique but results thus far have been negative due to premature fiber failure.
