Conference paper


The creep of the optical fibres were tested under static and cyclic loading were studied in this paper. In static load creep test, the specimens are hanged vertically and divided into two groups. The two groups are loaded with weights of 3N and 5N respectively. The gauge length of the specimens is 0.5m. A specimen free of load is measured at same time to provide the reference to compensate the influence of the temperature. The creep deformation of the fibers is measured for every 24 hours (one day). The elongations of the fiber via the time are shown in Figure 1.
