Modelling optical fibre cable

Fackerell, T. and Fraser, B. (1996) Modelling optical fibre cable. [Study Group Report]



Optical fibre cables are made by placing optical fibres inside a loose tube packed with a water based gel, and then winding these loose tubes on to a central strength member in helically wound sections of alternating twist separated by reversing sections. The length of the loose tubes and their position on the strength member was modelled along with an analysis of where the optical fibres lie in the loose tubes.
