Abstract:

This thesis involves the design and construction of an integrated fiber diameter measurement and strength test system for the purpose of conducting a study of the reliability of a composite material. The emphasis of this thesis is placed on the comparison of two methods of fiber diameter measurement using the light diffraction pattern formed by the obstruction of a laser beam by a fiber sample. Keywords Methods of fiber diameter measurement using laser diffraction pattern, and Integrated system.
