The program aims to elucidate the chemical or physical processes which influence the measured strength of glass fibers after they have been formed from the melt. Specifically, it is concerned with the effects of stress corrosion reactions which involve water vapor from the atmosphere or whatever other sources are available to the reacting species in the glass. The principal experimental technique is a systematic investigation of static fatigue, or delayed failure of single virgin fibers in tension under various environmental conditions. Preliminary considerations and results are given.
