Abstract:

V Grooves were successfully machined on the high strength steel wire of around 3 mm diameter. Eight of thin coated fibers were protected in these grooves against pulling force of greater than 150kgallowing 0.2 strain and lateral pressure of greater 400kg5cm. Many applications of this high strength grooved wire can be expected in design of optical fiber cable. Author
