B-value and Optical Fiber Lifetime

  • M. M. Bubnov (a1) and S. L. Semjonov (a1)


In this work we analyze the existing literature relating to the B-value and the inert strength measurements. The weak flaw statistic model for fiber lifetime estimation is considered with regard for the two-region crack growth.
