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
